African American Tea Pots

I've lived in Africa almost ten years, but I'm American, so I think my tea pots tend to reflect both influences.

I don't know why I love tea pots. It's coffee I love to drink.  Anyway, it's been a goal for a long time to make some tea pots, and thanks to my friend and mentor who recently spent 3 days with me, Now I can :)
I like throwing the pots on the wheel , then adding little sculptured touches. I actually don't like making spouts, and especially don't like making lids fit, but it's worth the effort, and hopefully will get easier as time goes by.

  Thanks for stopping by ! Gotta go clay is waiting....

If I had to choose one, I couldn't. They are all wonderful. What talent!
