“Heart of Gold Teapot”

Inspiration & Technique

Hand sculpted from water based clay, this piece was fired to 1900 degrees. I sanded it, then glazed it, and re-fired the piece. Afterward, I applied 23 karat gold gilding to the valves.

With a bachelor’s degree in biology, I’m fascinated with the subject. I’m working on a collection of anatomy teapots. I used a real human heart model for this piece; it’s anatomically correct.
