If you're looking for a special gift for someone that collects teapots, or loves fishes, or has a special place in their heart for absolute whimsy, here's your gift. I have a habit of making my last teapot my very favorite. This girl is no exception. I love this piece with a capital L. She's based on the bluefin trevaly. All the way from her unusual fins to her spots, she's a real beauty. Ready to swim right into your space and your heart.

Made from soft stoneware clay, I throw the ring and base on the potter's wheel and then go to work adding handbuilt embellishments that bring her to life. To add a bit of fantasy to this gal I've added long flirtatious eyelashes made of wire, her lips have been plumped and rouged, and her dorsal fins are accessoriesed with some beautiful lampwork beads created by pinkbeach. I also used the beads for the coordinated earrings. The whole process from start to finish takes about 5 to 6 weeks. As with all of my decorative teapots, this girl isn't practical to actually use. Because of her plump lips, she's a bit of a drooler. But if you want to spoof your friends at your next tea party, bring her out!

Dimensions will be approximately 10" wide by 10" high (inculudes wires) by 5" deep. .

Because this is a made to order listing it will take approximately 4-6 weeks to complete. I will keep you posted as I make my way through her creation with photos along the way.
