I finally have new material! Rejoice! Applaud! Howl it from the rooftops, but don't get in trouble with your HOA!
Believe it or else, this is all made from paper! I got the idea from this lovely tutorial! I've never tried quilling before, so basically, I just rolled the paper by hand without any sort of tool. And it's not exactly quilling paper, either; just regular paper cut into thin strips, glued into flat disks and pushed into bowl shapes, and then I spread glue all over it to make it keep its shape.
I sanded them with a nail file when they were dry, painted them, and glossed them.
The teapot was deceptively easy to make. I just made two simple bowl shapes from the paper, attached them end to end, and rolled a spout and a handle. The vases are pretty simple, too. One bowl shape, one tube shape, attached in the middle! Happy arting!
