Mogi, "hey, this is Mum's cup of tea."
Right after my workshop learning the wool felt teapot making from Pamela A. MacGregor (Tarvey Cottage Studio) a month ago, I really hooked in the creation and made a few as practice.
自上月從美國 Pamela A. MacGregor 學會製作很特別技巧的立體羊毛茶壺, 回來後我樂此不疲的做了幾款, 為的是練習及尋找羊毛的可塑性. 終於找到我這杯茶........
This one was made in Pamela's studio, the first one I learnt in early winter in Ohio. Intended to make it with little green and a sprout to expect spring. Know it's snow storm and everywhere covered with inches of snow. The grasses are now frozen !
Got inspired by Suzanne Higgs I made two teapots with lace. Well, they felted and clear on white.
This pair of "black & white" are tiny. I'm quite happy to work with this size.
This one, Aladdin teapot. Idea came from Judy L. She gave me this little souvenir after her trip to Dubai. I put some silk strings and yarns for decoration.
This set made earlier with some Wenslaydale curly fleece to have textural surface.
This purple one I made with some yarns embellished to have the look of "lavender field"
Stopper with Wenslaydale curly fleece and embellished with glass beads.
Though wool teapots are not functional, I made them for fun. This one the mouth is a bit bigger, I put a jam jar inside as flower pot.
Smaller one for a rose
"Hmmmmm, fragrance I love.... I know it's mum's cup of tea"

Making teapot is absolutely wonderful. I love the little sturdy objects, love the versatility of 3D making, embellishment and the combination with fibres and fabrics.
I really enjoyed so much the workshop with Pam. Her techniques are awesome, her studio is wonderful. Here's my previous post about the studio.
