Tea Time

Another of the pieces from the Gardiner Museum of Ceramics that caught my fancy is this wonderful teapot by American artist Richard Notkin who is known for his statement teapots. I love the quirkiness of this one with the dice handle on the lid and the walnut and acorn supports down at the bottom.

Statement art?
Is this a comment on our reliance on oil? Am I looking too deep here?

It almost looks like it was made of chocolate.

Something disappointing about a teapot that's not being used. :-)

I like it too. I didn't think of chocolate until I read the comments though and now that is all I can see!

This is an odd tea pot, but interesting. Thanks for your visit and comment on my blog.

It is a clever teapot. At a first glance, I thought it might have been Asian, but obviously the details dispelled that thought.

That would be fun to have.
