Presenting a fabulously whimsical fish and pelican ceramic stoneware decorative teapot. I've nicknamed her "Stripes".
Stripes Rewind has a pelican as a traveling companion, both are wearing cool rhinestone studded sunglasses. Stripes has wire with handmade ceramic rainbow Roy G Biv colored beads glued into her dorsal fin, as well as wires for her eyelashes. She's wearing rainbow ceramic dangle earrings.
Please note because this is a Made to Order listing please allow 4-6 weeks for the teapot to be created. Plus no shipping charges if shipped within the contiguous United States. Due to the size of this piece, she cannot be shipped internationally.
The teapot will be formed using soft stoneware clay. I will use the potter's wheel to throw her ring body and a pyramid cylinder for her base. She will be finished off using handbuilding techniques to bring her to life. All of the clay and glazes that I use are certified non-toxic so if you want to give her a smooch, go right ahead.
Stripes has all of the elements of a teapot but isn't practical for use. Because of her lucsious lips, she's a drooler. No microwave for her either because of the metal wire embellishments. She would make a fantastic addition to a teapot or fish collection or for someone that loves whimsy.
As I go through the process of creating "Stripes" for you, I will keep you posted with photos of her progress along the way.
