r National Gallery of Art, and it is so beautiful. I want one to drink out of this! This one is made by Laurent Amiot, a Quebec silversmith c 1810. This tea pot has inspired me in the story I'm working on. I love how things can strike a chord within us, and spark ideas and dreams. I find myself wanting to touch this teapot, and lightly go over the sibyl with my finger. From the handle and the spout, this tea pot was made to be used. It is lovely and finely worked in silver, as you can see from the picture. That sibyl on top though makes it a teapot extraordinaire, for me.
Wouldn't you like to drink out of a tea pot with a sibyl on top? And perhaps get a glimpse of the future?
On a bookish note: I am happily reading The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms by N.K. Jemison. This is a fabulous fantasy debut novel. I'm about 3/4 the way through, and devouring it. I've gone out and bought book two and three yesterday in the series, for the weekend. If you need a new fantasy to read, this one is a lot of fun and interesting and intriguing.
