Calling for teapot submissions! The Juried Functional Teapot Show II will be at NCECA in Sacramento next spring. Jurors this year are: John Neely (@neelyjc), Cooper Jeppesen (@cooperjeppesenceramics) and me.

Functionality is foremost in our decision-making process and we will try to pick a diverse range of teapots to show. We will choose just 10 teapots. And this year’s guest artist will be Pete Pinnell!

You have until October 23rd to email your submission. Send to: Hamish.jx@gmail.com. Up to 3 pictures of a single teapot (the exact one you would like to show), title, size, clay, firing/decorative method and price. No cost to submit. Spread the word!

Oh also, the teapot pictured here was made by Cooper Jeppesen and was part of the inaugural JFTS.
