Teapot show #2

Cedar Creek has all these very cool old cabinets that they display things in. For the show, the teapots where in two rooms and although most where on pedestals, some where in these old dish cabinets or glass cases. I always liked seeing the pots in this contexts because it always made me feel like these handmade objects where meant to be used!
I had Angela take some photo's of just pieces that stuck me right away when I saw them. Here's a teapot with terra sig and I liked the drawing because it told a story.
Here are Micheal Kline's pots!
This is by Elaine Coleman. I just can not imagine the amount of time she spends on something like this.
Here is Sandy Singletary's teapot. Sandy is one of our members in "Circle of Eight". At the moment she is in grad school and sort of being pulled to more sculptural pieces. I can't wait to see where school takes her with her work.

Yes! Thanks for sharing. I would love to get to see the show. I have a friend in it - Eileen Braun.

Elaine Coleman just had pieces in a show where I'm an apprentice. To actually see her work - wow - it's truly amazing!

Hey could you rework that top photo so we could click on it. It's linked to Cedar Creek for some reason. Probably just overlapped.
I'd like to be able to click on that first on in the last post too. Demanding aren't I?

I didn't know that Sandy Singletary was in the Circle of Eight. I loved the swirly handle and finial, that was why I took the pic. Didn't know made the pot actually. Now I really either HAVE to come to a Circle of Eight sale, or really stay away because I don't have the money.

Angela,
Sandy is in Grad school at the moment so she really is'nt making pots. I think she just made this one for the show. We all can't wait to see what she comes up with after grad school! Jen
