Ok, now you are killing me. How the hell did you turn this teapot with the handle and spout?

I’m with Mark, I am speechless.

The body, spout and handle are all one piece. The pot was turned on 3 axis and then carved.
I will find some photos of the trip

Cool! Amazing! Inspiring! Fantastic! Beautiful! Awesome!

Nope, words do not do justice to this one. Don’t even come close.

Thanks for sharing. (Still inadequate but the best I can do.)

Well – I’m at a loss for words.

Sometimes I will “favorite” a project because I think I could make something like it in the future.

In this case it’s only so I can see it again…

An inspiring display of imagination and craftsmanship – congratulations!
