porcelain pottery teapots
The teapot is always the potters’ greatest challenge because the accumulation and assembly of pieces yields a whole that is greater than the sum of these parts. The ceremonial, social and symbolic attributes of brewing and serving tea supply cross- cultural metaphors that attract teapot makers and collectors. My teapots are traditional in their usefulness and modernist in their concept. I intend that the shapes capture movement and a perhaps whimsical attitude. The color, texture and glaze design are meant to invoke an abstract sedimentary landscape and to augment and reinforce the forms.
