Raven Teapot

- by Rebecca Ridout

This week's theme: Ceramics

Earth and fire. Simple, basic and primordial. With skill and vision, the artist uses these elements to create objects of beauty and function.

-Melissa Morton


Art: Raven Teapot by Artist Rebecca Ridout
This teapot was slab built of raku clay, but fired to stoneware. The black is slip made of the same clay as the body, but with iron oxide mixed in to give it color. The negative space of the design was carved away to reveal the white clay, and it was finished with celadon glaze.
