30.11.08 "Time for teapots" designed by Diane Fitzgerald









At the beginning of November I saw the Teapot that Mariposas made and I immediately fell in love with it. I waited impatiently to the B&B magazine to arrive and from there on, I had a great time spending with this wonderful teapot, geniusly designed by Diane Fitzgerald (B&B December 2008, Issue 88, "Time for teapots", p.113-116). What's amusing, is that Mariposas fell in love too and also posted today her second beautiful teapot, only that this time it is also accompanied with all its set, cups, milk bottle, cookies etc... Check it!
The pattern of the Iris and flowers popped so naturally from the teapot and I think much of the color style is influenced from my good beader friend Pnina, but also Varda. The spiral is the Magatama spiral by Laura McCabe, with a small variation.
I had to figure out all the connections, time will say if it's comfortable or not to wear...

Hi, teapot-lover!! :-))

funny we both made a pattern onto the pot and we finished the same day, isn't it?
I like the bold colors, makes a totally different look.

The colors and design in your teapot are great! Now I have to make another one with a pattern. The teapot pattern was supposed to be in my next book, "Shaped Beadwork," but the publisher said it didn't fit so I sent it to Bead & Button and am happy that they published it. I've made other teapots if anyone is interested.
