Friday teapot blogging

November 23, 2007 at 6:05 pm (Teapot!)

Bet you thought I was joking.This teapot does not actually exist.

Oddly enough, there’s a story behind this teapot blogging. I’d originally planned to find images of the five teapots I currently own and see where that takes me. (Simply taking pictures isn’t an option, since I don’t have a digital camera. Come to think of it, I’m not sure where my other camera is.) So I wanted to start off with my fancy crackle-glaze teapot that I don’t use nearly enough.

Google image search is apparently still safe for teapots.* I searched and found this image, which though the shape is not quite right, still gives an idea of the lovely glaze on my teapot.

Then I went and actually looked at the source. This teapot doesn’t exist. It’s an image from a paper on creating surface crack patterns. And it fooled me.

I suppose this is an example of websurfing gone right — I go looking for something, find it, and find something completely different and interesting as well.

* It is not safe for Muppets. I don’t think I’ll ever lose the scars from that.
