Spotty Stoneware Teapot

Designer: Laura Fraedrich



  1. Begin with properly fired shelf cone 04 bisque. Moisten a clean sponge and wipe bisque to remove any dust.
  2. Thin some SW-141 White Matte with water in a small cup until it is the consistency of heavy cream. Pour the contents into the teapot and roll it to coat the entire inside. Stand teapot upside down to drain.
  3. Using the CB-604 Soft Fan Brush, apply 3 coats of SW-141 White Matte to the outside of the teapot except for the spout, handle, lid knob and bottom of teapot. Also leave the bottom 1/8” of the lid’s foot unglazed.
  4. Thin a small amount of SG-404 Designer Liner Blue with some water until it is the consistency of milk. Using the CB-604 Soft Fan, apply to a small area (no larger than 2” diameter in any direction).
  5. Dip the CB-106 Script Liner into isopropyl alcohol and dab onto the wet Designer Liner. This will make feathery spots.
  6. Repeat steps 4 and 5 with the remaining colors of Designer Liner.
  7. Using the CB-604 Soft Fan, apply 3 coats of SW-152 Blue Spatterware to the lid knob, spout and handle of the teapot.
  8. Wipe off any excess glaze from the foot of the teapot with a damp sponge.
  9. Do not stilt or hang over the edge of the kiln shelf.
  10. Fire to cone 5/6.
