I specialize in tea bowls, tea cups, sake cups, and whiskey cups. I have a passion for wood fired japanese tea ceremony ware, and this has fueled my creative process in America as well.
The two teapots for this show are a play on the classical American teapot, with the attention paid to larger than necessary handles and no attention paid to comfortable functioning properties.  Pouring, tea leave circulation, spout filtering, or even an exact fit of the lid is not a focal point of this series.
My functional teapots are usually side handled with an indented spout filter, and glazed with functional, tea friendly glazes.
