Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
The homely, practical teapot has become an art form in the hands of modern potters. This is a photo gallery of figurative, sculptural, and traditional teapots made by over 200 international contemporary potters. The pots are colorful, whimsical, and most of them will never be used for tea. In each photo caption, Tourtillott (ed., 500 Bowls) includes the teapot artist, title, dimensions, method of construction, and photographer's credit. No projects are included in this sophisticated idea book. Best suited for specialized decorative arts collections. Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
