Teapots: Object to Subject


June 14, 2008-August 10, 2008
The traditional teapot has a familiar shape and silhouette—the angled spout and gently looping handle. Selected from the finest entries in the 2004 Survey of Contemporary American Teapots at the Craft Alliance, St. Louis, Missouri, this exhibition of 45 ceramic, metal, and mixed media works challenges the concept of the teapot as a predictable utilitarian vessel. As it becomes more abstracted, function becomes less relevant—the subject of the work becomes the primary focus—the object becomes a secondary concern. Artists include internationally known and collected Richard Notkin, Bennett Bean, Michael Simon, and Noi Volkov as well as emerging artists.
