The teapot is to the potter what the canvas is to the painter. It has inspired clay artists to create their original works of art since the ancient Chinese first developed vessels for brewing and serving tea. This book provides a visual tour of how potters from around the world are interpreting this classic form today. The 500 figurative, sculptural and traditional teapots astound us with their myriad shapes and delightful combinations of utility and decorative treatment. * FASCINATING compilation for arts and crafts ceramists and collectors of 500 of the most creative and astounding teapot designs you have ever seen. * FABULOUS SOURCEBOOK: pottery enthusiasts will enjoy the huge variety of shapes, surface treatments and techniques: hand built and wheel-thrown, stoneware and porcelain, round and square, wax resistant and slip work, functional and sculptural.
