Ainulindalė Teapot Can't Post

I made this teapot recently, and thought I'd share it with you.

Using a glaze pencil, I wrote the first paragraph of the Ainulindalė around it.

Picture Here


..The land of long-forgotten name:
......no man may ever anchor near;
..No steering star his hope may aim,
......for nether Night its marches drear,
..And waters wide no sail may tame,
......with shores encircled dark and sheer.

..O! Haven where my heart would be!
......the waves beat upon thy bar
..For ever echo endlessly,
......when longing leads thy thought afar

Nicely done... [In reply to] Can't Post

I've been experimenting with pottery recently and I can appreciate how hard it is to make things like that considering I can't even throw a basic pot yet!
I like the effect of the writing with the simple glaze.

"Earth shakes
Stone breaks
The forest is at your door
The dark sleep is broken
The woods have awoken
The trees have gone to war
Roots rend, wood bends
The Ents have answered the call
Through branches now the wind sings
Fell the power of living things
The trees have gone to war"
From 'The Ents'

Worry not [In reply to] Can't Post

you'll get the hang of it
Just spend as much time on the wheel as you can
There's nothing like practice practice practice Smile
