Whale Tail Teapot


March 1st.

This dreadful Winter has me hobbled. The television said it was -16F last night and Niagara Falls is beginning to freeze over......

I was immensely excited to get a Cozy Cabin Marine Propane Heater for my 1968GT, but there isn't any way that I'll crawl under and over it to tap/run propane line, drill roof for flue...

So, in my stir-crazy cabin fever, I made a 2 cup teapot to fit the cook-top on the heater.

I styled it with cues from a Whale-Tail Airstream.

It's made from porcelain clay. Fired to 2300F.

I'm on my second cup...

Heater is marine grade stainless and brass, weighs 11 pounds. Heater info at post 715

I agree very cute!

Per the Community Rules, there's no selling here on the forum, but if you put an ad in the classified section you might find some takers .

What do you use for glaze to get such a shiny metallic finish?

Thanks all for the kind comments, the project kept my brain out of the snow for a few weeks. It was a fun challenge. Guess I was trying to make some brightness in all this gloomy weather. More snow to shovel this morning.

Ag&Au; Looks just like Pd, very shiny. Glaze formulated by Amaco, PC-4 .
