Theme of autumn - a teapot I made with the color of autumn - the birches, yellow, red.... Added to the set of woolly teapot (last post)
茶煲 (trouble), sampan, "Table for two" ..... 可會想起 "秋天的童話"? 好浪漫的電影. 謝謝 Sammy S. 你給我創作泉源. 很喜歡我的朋友及學生不時給予靈感. 我的羊毛氈茶壺已有春、夏、秋,下次將會是冬的主題.
I used to make ceramic teapots. Now I almost hooked to wool felt. Last weekend I stayed overnight in my studio. Buried myself in the creation. That's me must have it finished overnight.
Wool laid with some prefelt birch trunks, stones and wool nepps as grasses. Handle is wrapped with own natural printed silk chiffon. Soft look of dry wool is always prettier than felted.
To make the yellow leaves textures I used Melinda's Wenslaydale curly wool which is my treasure.
With trunks, stones prefelts that make the textural surface.
I made the mouth bigger for storage and the stopper with some prefelts as popped up seedpod.
A teapot or a flower pot is finished overnight
The next day I took it to the beach near my studio for the shots.
Just a 10-min walk the beach near my Stanley studio is such a nice spot as not too crowded.
Stones, sands, water...... form the backdrop ........
and comes the "Autumn's Tale"......
"A table for two..... "
That's the very romantic Chinese love movie "An Autumn's Tale" reminded by my student Sammy S. This is what I created last weekend.
I love my students and friends who always inspired my creation. I love my studio environment not only of stunning views but also have like-minded. The day I finished shooting I bumped into my neighbor Zeinab and her sweetie Layla.
Zeinab joined my nuno felt private tutorial once and very interested in feltmaking. I'm most happy to share the fun of wool felt. We'd a nice chat over coffee with her gorgeous sweet after the shot.
Set of teapots - Spring with sprout, Summer with lavender, Autumn with birches. Theme of winter will be next creation.
