Tea for Two- Polymer Clay Teapots
Tea for Two...What I call my Recycling Craft is another one of my polymer clay based obsessions. Finding crafty uses for burned out light-bulbs that would otherwise be discarded. Every one I know collects their old light-bulbs for me & I'm getting a huge stash of all shapes & sizes! Who isn't charmed by a tiny tea set? Toddlers to Grandmas, find them fun to play with & collect. My mini 2.5" teapot with matching cups reminds me of the whimsical style of Mary Engelbreit. She is known for her greeting cards & classic children's book illustrations.
"If you don't like something, change it; if you can't change it, change the way you think about it. "
— Mary Engelbreit
Here are a few of her teapot illustrations, she is well-known for her cherries & flowers:)
These 2 teeny-weeny teapots are only an 1.5" tall & are made from night-light bulbs! The lids are removable & the pots will hold water. The light-bulb screw base was broken off by tapping it at the base with a butter knife handle. I hope you like my little teapots!
