This started with soft scraps of clay and transformed into a teapot. My amazing daughter was with me in the studio and she added the butterflies. The glaze was a Cone 6 creme that didn’t like the stoneware clay body very much. it was painted on, instead of being dipped. I also painted a manganese stain on the butterflies, before bisque firing. In the end, I dipped the whole thing in a clear glaze.
I’m on the fence about how I feel for this piece. I think I like it more because my daughter helped me with it. But my eyes keep finding it and staring at it for a long time. I think I’m waiting for whatever beauty will emerge from the ugly chrysalis.
