Biennial teapot exhibition
Craft Alliance's biennial teapot exhibition is one of the institution's most popular events. This year, the show includes more than 80 clay teapots made by more than 60 potters.
The pots were chosen by master potter Fong Choo, who invited 20 artists and chose the rest from submissions. "I selected the works based on four criteria: strong form, great craftsmanship, skill in handling the medium and attention to detail," Choo said. Potters from all over the country are featured.
In addition to being more or less functional — some of the pots might frustrate users — all the pots were required to fit within a 10-by-10-inch box.
