As it has been said: Love and a cough cannot be concealed.
Even a small cough.
Even a small love.
One Little Teapot came out of its first firing. Now all she needs is a little oxide wash to give a richer depth. Clear gloss in the eyes for a contrast against the semi-matte finish of the face. Maybe a little clear satin along the division line of the lips. The interior has a black gloss.
I am still thinking about the egg. I had a white porcelain egg, but it just look like a supermarket egg. Which is not a bad thing, just not right feeling for this teapot. I could make it more of a robin egg blue with brown speckles, but somehow the quirky black dots happened. As soon as I make a decision I will glaze it into the nest lid. That way it's down permanent and acts as a knob.
