Exploring the teapot form

Over the years, I have used the teapot form as a canvas to challenge myself artistically.

A teapot needs 4 distinct parts to technically be considered a teapot: body, spout, handle and lid.

The size and shapes of those parts can be left up to interpretation and are limited only by imagination.

 Each teapot asks to be interacted with.  It has its own unique personality.

Translucent porcelain and soy wax glow candles

Entirely handmade, wheel thrown translucent porcelain vessels are filled with unscented soy wax.  The translucency of the porcelain allows the light to shine through as the candle burns down, creating an elegant glow.  Vessels are glazed in ways that enhance the glowing effect, creating patterns of shadows and light.  Empty candle containers can be refilled locally.
