It is true – my studio has literally been taken over by tasting cups. A while ago, we offered to create and donate some 800 tasting cups to the Victoria Tea Festival and with the festival coming up this weekend (February 13 + 14) everything we do seems to revolve around cups. In between kneading, wedging, extruding, shaping, trimming, drying, firing and glazing, I try to fit in some teapot time as well. And yes, there will be new and cool teapots available at the tea festival. Come have a look if you are at Crystal Gardens.
