Tea caddy


This piece was inspired by the Japanese Tea caddy. Instead of lacquering I have used car sprays to achieve the main colour of the body with the detail being hand painted in acrylic gold paint.

The next one is almost ready the the detail and will be posted in a short while.

Hi Mark,

This is beautiful.

Pieces like this are serving to highlight just how inferior my own work is but also serving as an inspirational goal.

Take care,

Lee.

Hi Lee

Thank you. However the techniques for this are not difficult and only require patience to achieve the end result.

Hi Philip

Apologies for the delay in replying to your comment. I obviously missed the notification that you had posted.

I too am looking forward to developing this but I think it will be on the back burner for a while.

take care
