I now have work for sale in a shop! SMALLpieces is part of Northcote Pottery and is located in East Brunswick, Melbourne. Exciting times.

Here are some photos of the first official teapot that I've made. The motivation came by way of a commission from a work-mate. Stipulations: Side-handled style, matte black, 2 small but not tiny cups. I am very happy to say that after bashing the lid off (stuck pretty well during firing) and then drilling a whole in it (forgot to clear the unfired glaze from the previously made air hole in lid), it does pour well! A minor dribble happens at the end, but nothing to get your knickers in a twist over.
Detail (lid): glaze - purchased as a powder - Northcote Pottery Satin Black stoneware glaze. Claybody - Clayworks JB3 with added speckles
