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.
Super excited to be accepted to exhibit again at the Brisbane Finders Keepers Design Market 8-10 November at Brisbane Showgrounds. I will have a teapot stall with both functional and fanciful individually crafted teapots for all you teapot lovers and collectors.

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…
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!
