Three fishy teapots. Each is made entirely of stitched threads, free-standing, and hollow. Like any teapot, these have a spout (mouth), handle (tail), and lid (dorsal fin). Unlike most teapots and fish, these prefer to stay dry.
The first fish is made with metallic silver threads and pieces of repurposed CDs. The CDs catch and refract light, reminiscent of the scales of a living fish. The eyes are made from CD hubs.
size = 7 x 13 x 3 inches
The second fish is made with various metallic green and gold threads. CD pieces are placed like horizontal stripes along its sides. Its eyes are stitched black cotton thread. With its spherical body and somewhat comical face, this fish is more whimsical.
size = 6 x 8 x 5 inches
The third fish is inspired by butterfly fish. It is made with several different kinds of metallic threads, and black cotton for the eye and eyespot.
