I sketched through some of the elements of the development of the Yixing travel teapot into the moon flask, which will be porcelain or fine bone china with added Bath stone and oxides to create the patina of Holburne’s passport, which is the other artefact that I paired with the teapot.

I have cast one, but I am making a new mould tomorrow as I want the flattened globular shape to be more globular, more rounded. I don’t think the first test looked like a traditional moon flask, an example below by Shoji Hamada.

    1. The project development in the blog started in October, we had to choose two objects from the museum’s collection to use as a starting point and as inspiration. Maybe the earlier posts from October will make the process more clear
