Polymer Clay Sculpted Teapots…Recycled Lightbulbs

Polymer Clay Sculpted Teapots

I’ve been working on more of my “Light-bulb Teapots”  This Fish Teapot is my latest concoction.  The main body of the fish is covered in a Mokume Gane technique, that was made using Premo Pearls clay.  I impressed a pattern into the many layers of clay & then shaved off the raised portions.  I used about 6 different color variations, from cobalt blue, turquiose, aqua, to a brilliant limey-lemon with green foil accents.  For the details I added a few Kato liquid droplets on the gills & fins.  I had quite a time trying to bake this little guy! I slumped the tail & fins over armatures made of foil.
Here’s another tiny teapot made over a re-cycled ceiling fan light-bulb


This is made over a larger round vanity light-bulb. I used  Premo gold clay & translucent to create a butterscotch swirl, I mixed a cinnamon spice color for the flowers & an olive/lime for the leaf cane.

Relax & Create- Happy Claying!
Have a cup of tea too! My all-time favorite is Constant Comment-a yummy blend of orange & spice:)
