'Tea cosies are funny even when they are not mean to be funny
And tea POTS are very accommodating. They will not bemoan your handmade gift. They will not worry about the colour suiting their complexion, or that it doesn't quite fit. There will be no prissiness about scratchy wool. They will not say 'how lovely' and then hide it at the back of the cupboard somewhere.
Make a teapot smile. Knit a cosy.'
Queen of the Tea Cosies Loani Prior
Quote from her book 'Really wild tea cosies'
This was a small display at the Powerhouse Museum showing a sample of these wild sculptural tea cosies. They are crazy artworks in themselves. Mum and I just had to buy the book to try out some of her patterns ourselves. They will most likely become Christmas presents for everyone :-)
