hand building happiness

making hand built teapots for newbies was a challenge but they were certainly up to the task, some fantastic works emerged and we can’t wait to fire and glaze them.

if you are interested in doing a workshop at PJ Pottery Studio on Mt Tamborine, send me an email hello@pjpottery.com or subscribe to my blog for all news and updates.

4 days to go!

bags are packed, last firing hot in the kiln ready to be unpacked… teapots galore! Finders Keepers is a beautiful curated Australian designer market. I am stoked to have a stall (G07) again this year. I’ll be situated near the south east entrance, near the food vendors – very handy.

i’m in love

TEAPOTS are a challenge and a joy to create, I feel honoured to be part of the November Finders Keepers design market in Brisbane with a stall of my handmade teapots and I’m in a frenzy of making. Thought I’d share part of the process…

teapot making

teapots are made in separate parts – body, spout, lid and handle – and put together once the clay has firmed up a little to a ‘leather hard’ state. Once constructed they need to dry slowly to avoid cracking of the individual components and then they are bisque fired, glazed and fired again.

Opening the kiln at the end of this quite long process is a huge reason I love pottery,  it’s like opening a treasure chest – every time!
