when pigs fly: how an ordinary teapot is suddenly 100 bucks....

Well, not sure about the price quite yet, but I was using my favorite old teapot the other day, which has a nice rounded body, holds about 4 cups, works very easily, classic shape.  SO, I go into the studio to remake it so that I can sell one to YOU...but then I get into the decoration on the knob, and, well, go NUTS!  I spend all morning fiddling with it and, well you can see, CUTE huh?  Have a great Monday!

Just a hundred? I'd say another bit at least! Very precious and beautiful.

Since I think you consistently undercharge I would say that $100.00 is the low end.

What price do you put on art?

Seriously cute lid on a fantastic shaped teapot. 100 bucks for sure. Just need a pig farmer who likes tea!

You put lots of work into that tea pot, don't under-selll it.
