Album: Teapots
Simple and not so simple!

These were made over the years- sort of an historical display.   There have been hundreds of humble teapots without the pretentions of some of these flashier ones-  but every one, whether strutting or quiet, handles and pours well.

Teapots, by their very function, are sculptural- an assemblage of several parts. I have played with many forms but always made them comfortable to pick up and efficient at pouring.
They range from "one cuppers" to 12 cups - about the liquid weight limit for comfortable use. Sometimes it's fun to make a set with cream and sugar, cups and saucers and even a little vase. The English add a water pot and a waste bowl- the latter reminiscent of the Japanese tea ceremony waste pot.
