Auction of mainly English 18th century teapots

There will be an auction of mainly English 18th century teapots in London on May 15th. The teapots are the collection of Colin Hanley, a British collector who assembled them between the late 1980s and early 2000s. There are some very rare early English porcelain teapots in the group, which comprises just over 100 lots, as well as some interesting later ones. The collection is being sold as part of an Arts of Europe sale, but it also has its own separate catalogue, with larger images and more information.

MALEVICH TEAPOT 2.0


Since its foundation in 1744 the Imperial Porcelain Factory in Saint Petersburg, Russia had been producing high quality porcelain exclusively for the Tsar and the Imperial Court. Soon after the Bolshevik October Revolution of 1917 the factory was nationalized and renamed State Porcelain Factory. The old traditional bourgeois order was swept away and a revolutionary director was installed who invited artists with radical, modernist ideas to design avant-garde ceramics and porcelain that was "revolutionary in content, perfect in form and flawless in technical execution".

During a very short but intense period, between the end of 1922 and April 1924, the Suprematists were allowed fearless experimentation with utopian, fresh, radical abstract designs based on square, circle and cross. The Suprematism founder and prophet Kazimir Malevich (1878-1935), one of the most important pioneers of geometric abstract art, designed here in 1923 his famous innovative, Suprematist teapot and teacups which were de-constructed arrangements of geometrical shapes.

For some this irrational explosive teapot, with its shamelessly phallic spout, looked like a hurtling railway steam engine or it was categorized of "utilitarian irrelevance". Only a handful teapots were made in 1923 because during manufacturing at the State Porcelain Factory they faced several problems. When the factory Director noticed: "Mr. Malevich, your teapot does not pour well" Malevich replied: "it is not a teapot but the idea of a teapot".

Today, with the revolutionary ceramic 3D printing technology, this challenging, complex teapot can now be manufactured in a totally different way without all the problems Malevich faced back in 1923 at the State Porcelain Factory in Saint Petersburg. This 3D printed Malevich Teapot 2.0 is an improved, nearly identical reissue at 90% of the original size, of the original 1923 Malevich teapot which was slightly adapted and optimized for 3D additive manufacturing printing technology. It is a functional teapot with lid, which will offer you in combination with the associated Malevich teacups everything you need for the ultimate Modernist tea ceremony.

Order your 3D-printed Malevich 2.0 Teapot directly from our Geometric Abstraction webshop at our licensed manufacturer Shapeways who will process your order, print the goods and ship them to you from New York (to USA & Canada) or from the Netherlands (to Europe):

ONE LEGGED TEAPOT


While on a long car trip Anthony Scheffler's eleven year old son quietly doodled in the back seat. After some time he handed him a sheet of notebook paper with a sketch of a teapot and said “You need to make this.” At home they worked out some design details, picked out the materials and started construction. When it was all done he wanted to entitle it “Committee Work”... he was over ruled.

Materials: Mahogany, ebonized Walnut, anodized aluminum

Dimensions: 7"L x 12"H x 2.5W

This piece has been sold through The Gallery at The Georgia Museum of Agriculture

Dotty Teapot



Made by Mark Dally
Height including knob 21 cms, Width including handle and spout 27cms
Dotty is a tug of war between his skill of dripping the slip into the right place (from quite a height), and gravity’s final say in where and how the drop of slip lands and spreads on the clay’s surface. Platinum handle and knob of lid.contemporary teapot with traditional values, it pours well and has a lid that does not fall out onto the table. Naturally it has a tea grid to strain the leaves.
