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
