Teapot making

So, for the past few months I have been making a teapot based on the highlight series of jewellery design. The teapot is made from stainless steel, copper, nickel and has a little wooden handle on the lid.

I have had the general design for this shape of teapot for a long time, but I haven’t found the right concept to fit it under. Recently, I made and designed a range of jewellery called “highlights”, I then married the two ideas from object and jewellery together to create the final design for the teapot.

Making the teapot has taken much longer than anticipated, as it is with most things hand made but the end result is almost always worth it as this time.

While making the teapot I took a few pictures of the making process, so for those curious folk out there have a look at the pictures.

Wooden Jewellery Box

So, I don’t only make things out of metal. Occasionally I like to make thing from other materials. This is a jewellery box I made earlier this year. It is made from various hardwoods I found lying around my workshop. The joints are all dovetailed and I made the hinges out of wood. I really enjoyed making this, so I thought I would share and I hope you like the pictures.
