Set of my four different teapots.
Spring of green field and sprout popping out
Summer of lavender field
Autumn of birches with crisp yellow leaves
Winter of flame on wood
Since I've done a few wool felt teapots (last post), I wanted to make a season series.
Added to it is Winter.
Winter is cold, flame is hot. A burning pot fills a room cozy with steam and hot air. That's why I think of a burning pot for winter.
I made it with a single enclosed resist. Upper is a teapot and bottom is the burning wood. I put some white silk strings and mulberry silk as ashes and smoke. Put a few onion dyed Teeswater curly fleece and red dyed Wensleydale curls as fire or flame.
Here it comes......The finished look of a teapot on a burning wood
Both sides look
I made the Winter theme of a burning teapot as I remember when I was young we went hiking or wild camps, we used to carry with us a metal pot to set fire with wood on the rocks to make noodles or rice.
Nowadays we live in the urban and country parks are well built with cement BBQ stoves. People are not bother to carry lots of stuff for cooking. We're in Hong Kong with high rises in urban. Much of Hong Kong's terrain is hilly and mountainous. Only 30-min away I'm up from my place in the mountain to have this good view but wildfire is not allowed.
This wool felt teapot is not only an ornament, I want it a functional storage.
Mogi, "Hmmmmm, a storage for my treats ?!"
A flower holder is a good decoration.
Whatever it serves is fun to make
Of the seasons theme, I like the most is this one first made in Pamela A MacGregor's workshop since the wool used is Finn. It felts so well. Quite firm and sturdy. I just ordered a lot to do more 3D creations.
