Drinking Outside the Box

Drinking Outside the Box

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

4″ x  6″ x 10″   Drinking Outside the Box is an assemblage piece in my teapot series. It has been a little while since I’ve done any new teapot sculptures, mainly because I usually work around a special items that I’ll find, and I just hadn’t found any cool pots lately, until this one popped up.

 

 

 

 

 

 

The base is a wooden box from a set of children’s nesting boxes. I love the use of whimsical items and it’s a nice shape and solid form. It is wrapped in antique paper and topped with bits of tea papers.

 

 

 

 

 

 

The pouring tea is created from wire, ribbon, chain and beads, and includes a special charm.

Purple Pleasure

Purple Pleasure

8″ x  8″  Purple Pleasure is an assemblage in my teapot series. I love the romantic feel of this one, from its soft color to the scrollwork base. The silver plate at the bottom is mysterious to me, as it isn’t really a plate, but isn’t a trivet either. The scrolled part was a candleholder. The tiny cup is a sweet espresso cup. Repurposing discarded items is my goal.

9″ x 7″ Black Tea is an assemblage piece in my tea pot series. I found the sweet round black teapot at Goodwill, as well as the metal works frame. I added a tin teacup from my collection and created the “tea” from chain.
