"WINTRY MOON QUEEN HAND PAINTED COFFEE POT"

All right, the start of a new year. I am ready and hope you are as well! Yes, this is another moon face coffee/tea pot. What can I say but I love working on these. I try to incorporate as many embellishments as I can and what I don’t have, I create.
I found this pot and loved the patina/tarnish on it. It seemed to really pick up surrounding blues and that fit what I was looking for. I pictured a wintry moon face and formed the head, painted the face and then decided I needed a crown. I found some wood skewers (new) and cut them down and painted them. I placed the pegs in a circle and tapped them in nice and snug.
Then using some glittery thread I wove it in and out of the pegs and ended in the back with a hand tied bow. I also had some cut out white snowflakes that I glued between the pegs. When this was done I needed to see some glitter on the Moon Queen’s head and I glittered away. My work space looked like a glitter bomb went off. I put her aside to dry and worked on the fluffy cloud collar out of some yarn I had in my stash and knitted a collar.
The painting of the pot ensued. I left the handle and spout bare metal. I painted the rest of the pot. The trees circle the pot and were glittered. In the front of the pot is a bare spot which I decided was a skating pond (to me it looked like ice). The ice has a double heart etched on the surface as well as a snow couple sharing a moment. More glitter was added around the pond just because I could not help myself.
I was happy with the way the pot turned out. To me, it bridges the gap between winter and Valentine’s Day (the double hearts) which I was looking for. I hope you like it too.
Measurements: Approximately 9-inches tall and 9½-inches wide spout to handle.
