The Eccentric Teapot
By Garth Clark
Short and stout, of course, is the very least of it. Inspired by tea drinking four thousand years ago, the form of the teapot has arrived in endless imaginative variations – humble, elegant, abstract, bizarre but every which one described in this book is inventive! The Memphis Italian teapots are SUPER - we hadn’t seen those before. Adrian Saxe – how does he do it? The Wieldon/Wedgewood vegetable and fruit teapots are timeless beauties. So many ideas to steal, but do you have the technique to back it up?
