Teapot shaped tea bag holder. Hand painted and glazed.

Although I hand pour most of my ceramic pieces, this great little tea bag holder was poured by another ceramic studio for me. It was made in a plaster mold using ceramic slip (liquid clay). As the plaster removes water from the slip, the piece firms up enough to be removed from the mold. It is cleaned, then fired in a kiln to become bisque. I draw my original design in pencil on the bisque piece and using colorful pigments, it is then painted in a watercolor manner and fired again. After it cools, usually 24 hours, it is glazed inside and out with a clear lead-free glaze and refired in the kiln. Because all of the design work is done under the glaze, it is dishwasher safe.
The size is 5”X3-1/2”

Frequently asked questions about GoodNiteGracie

Yes, everything in my shop is handmade by me in my home studio. I do all of the painting with high fire pigments on earthenware clay (either slab-rolled or slip-cast). Everything is glazed by hand and kiln fired in one of my 3 electric kilns. My designs are original and all have been copyrighted by me. If you see any of these designs, you will find my initials "GMS" somewhere on the piece.
