Tea in bloom

This piece was made in collaboration with american artist Cynthia Gibson. It is made out of holly. I made the teapot and the drop coming out of it, and Cynthia created the floral design with pyrography, paints and gold leaf. We talked about collaborating on a piece over a year ago, and we waited for the idea to mature.We decided to work on the drop coming out of the tiny teapot and decorate it with a floral pattern and with that make the connection with the tea. I started the piece by turning and hollowing the teapot, then I turned and carved the drop, I sanded both of them until I had a perfectly smooth and shiny surface. Then I shipped the pieces across the ocean to Cynthia so she can decorate it with pyrography, paints, gold leaf, and a little bit of magic.
