Winter's Tea

A Fiber Teapot



10″ H x 7″ L x 5″ W


Embroidery Thread, Fabric Paint, Cubic Zirconia

Materials & Techniques

I machine embroidered many sizes and shapes of snowflakes using various white and pink embroidery threads. I threw a teapot on the wheel and fired it to the bisqueware state. Then I placed the snowflakes on the teapot and used a fabric sculpting media to harden the snowflakes in place. Afterwards I removed the bisqueware teapot so that only the thread teapot remained. I airbrushed blue fabric paint and added cubic zirconia gems to represent the sparkle of snow.
