Work in progress and a rebuild

After the Leeds Steampunk Fair I was contacted with an enquiry, could I make a functional tea pot in the style of the space scouts?

There's nothing like a challenge to get me going, so here's a couple of pictures of work in progress. I've made extra lids and spouts so I can select the ones that I like best.

The tea pot is drying out ready for its first, biscuit firing.

Meanwhile I've been "rebuilding" a clock.  It kept good time but the face needed a small repair. The workman found more things that had to be fixed, then he said he had to bring a couple of mates to help. They say it'll be finished by next week, probably. It still keeps good time though.
