David Beeching


Beeching was born in 1938 and raised in Alberta, Canada. His parents were strict Catholics, which may explain why religious images crop up in his work.
His teapots incorporate sculptural creatures, which look down from the top of Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris and glaze paintings on the pottery body. These chimeras (like gargoyles) were used to spook people into the church.
His teapots are on display in Lee County Commissioner Tammy Hall's office in Florida until Oct. 31st.
