How to grow a teapot

I have a request through Etsy for a teapot, do we have any?
 In fact we do and here they are for the picking.

Ripe and tasty right off the vine, or rock as this case may be.
 From large to small.
Just take your pick.





They do get a little tipsy on the rock. I would love just the right rock to place them on. Then again it is fun to find the right spot to put them and balance... besides I love rocks too and these are pretty fine rocks.

Back to the grind.

I've tried planting teapots behind the studio but I have yet to get a crop that looks like yours.

Good crop, with no kiln crittur damage! How much do they hold?

That rock has sprouted some pretty pots over the years!

Judy Shreve said...

I want a teapot growing rock in my yard!
Especially one that grows those beauties!

Those are some sweet looking teapots!

They are beauties, your customer may have a hard time choosing.

I wish I could grow teapots that quickly here, the soil must be richer down the road a piece!

Every time I get an Etsy request I have to plant a few seeds and hope one of them grows the way they want it.

Dang, I wish I could grow a teapot. That is a form that 1) intimidates me and 2) I suck at!! Actually, it's the spout thing...ugh.

Your customer will be overwhelmed with the choices~ they are all so beautiful :)

Hey- don't give up- I made a lot of "gun" target" worthy teapots first before these starting coming off the wheel.
As they say practice, practice -practice.
Also if you come here I will give you a lesson.
Come on over.
