  • The Finishing touch...

    Greetings,
    I have a complementary course at school, and I chose Pottery. Our last project is a Teapot and I am not quite sure how to paint it. This is why I am here! I was thinking to go with a simplistic design with 1 color, and paint the handle some other color. But maybe you guys, the pro's, would have some helpfull advices!(Picture in attachment)


    Thanks in advance.

    Ps. Comments, critizism or whatever about my piece is welcomed! This is only my thirds project, and my first time doing pottery. So anything to improve is appreciated!

    Your tea pot is lovely. As it is a contempory design I would go for something plain - white or ivory that type of thing - clean lines on the kettle - clean colour type thing. You could do the whole thing the one colour and see if you feel like making the handle a contrasting colour or just leaving it plain.

    Cheers.

      I agree with Lisa

      Do you make all your own pots?

        Gosh!

        ...I was just expecting to see a bog standard round type teapot.

        As a Deco fan, that is just up my street. It's wonderful....I love it.

        Go online, or visit your library. Check out the colours most popular for that Deco/ Nouveau era. And, for what it's worth, I'm with Lisa. Clean, sharp, understated.

        It doesn't need decoration. The design says it all.

          Stunning work, I love it. Ditto for the above suggestions from everyone... simple and understated.

            Love it too. Keep it simple and I would check art deco colours.

              I appreciate the suggestions!
              And in response to Lisa, yes i make my own pots.

              I will post a picture when the whole thing is done, and I will check in the meanwhile art books.

                I made some teapots once on a pottery wheel.

                Decorative though as I don't think you'd get half a cup of water out of it!! My mum still has a few of them!!
