Teapot Series


I have taught teapot making for many years. In 2006, I finally took the challenge on personally, using the form to deal with issues of relationship of parts, decoration and pattern.

They are made with earthenware clay, built with coils on a slab bottom. I repeat the form, a pot on a pot, with low fire slips and glazes on the surfaces, the 2 –d images repeating the 3 –d image in space. The feet give the pots a sense of animation. I like the playful quality of this series.
