Acorn Tea

This is the latest in my acorn cap series of pieces. I have been wanting to do a tea kettle for some time. This is a fairly literal interpretation of the tea kettles that I remember from my childhood. Tea for me growing up in South Texas was something that was put over ice. Most family's brewed their tea in the sun in a large glass pickle jar. However in inclement weather sun tea could not be made so you had to boil your water. I remember those large domed tea kettles sitting on every family's stove. The main body of the kettle is live oak acorn caps cast in a teal blue resin. The base, handle, spout, and lid are live oak burl cast in the same teal blue resin.
