It would be nice to find this teapot, and even to use the kiln at the local pottery place near me. I always have had problems I. The past with the glazes not being true to color, but those were with free form pieces I had done on my own. I really love these colors and the Rose design, it looks very high end and designer! Has anyone made this or found the teapot for sale? So cool!

I would like to know who the manufacturer of the greenware teapot DM2362 is also. Even though I live in a large city, there are very few ceramic studios that do 'party painting' as there are serious clay artists who rent their own clay studios and don't open them to the public unless it is Art for Sale Week. It is a very unusual teapot and its design is an integral part of the colorwork. Wonderfully whimsical, and I would expect to see the Mad Hatter being served from it. Does the manufacturer have a website where the greenware could be mail ordered??? thanks.

Need to tell where to get the DM2362 Teapot. Not many ceramic shops around where I live. Love the Teapot.
