Today is the post that I promised. Here are the photos of the newly completed teapot! I love the way it turned out, even though it unintentionally looks like a sea turtle or manatee crossed with an elephant. I’ve been having a hard time coming up with a name for it. I’m thinking something involving the word (or just the word) Lorica. What do you think? I don’t really want to give it a funny name like Tea Turtle, Teapunk, or Manatea (as I earlier eluded to.) But it’s just been really hard this time.
The riveting went pretty well, though I did have to finagle it a bit to be able to get to all the joints. I really worked at the design as I went to make sure that I would be able to get it all together. It meant some modifications and not as many rivets as I originally imagined, but I still love the way it’s all connected. What do you think about it? Do you like the connections, the pieces, and the textures?
