      A great loking teapot John. How did you do the texturing? It look like you had hammered it. I like it so much that I want to try making one myself. Do you mind if I use yours as inspiration?

      Nice John,

      The trivet is that little something extra that adds so much.

      What a beautiful piece, John. I wouldn't expect anything else, but this is over the top perfect. It's fun just to look at and study.

      Excellent John, looks just like old cast iron.
    • John Jordan
      It is indeed hammered, feel free to have at it. Cast iron was the intent. :)

      Thank you all.

      Beautiful piece John.
      What are the dimensions ?
      What does the Japanese writing say ?

      Thanks, Jim. Maybe seven inches tall. It is not profound. :)

      Superb, John.......

      Is there any intent to use it for what it looks like......or is this simply a study in design, using the lathe to create the shape?

      Thanks. No, it would be hard to make tea in a wooden pot, I think. :)It's for the AAW teapot exhibiton-I was invited, but I think it may be juried as well.

      John, a great example of the synergy of form, texture and color!
