Synopsis: Dive into tantalizing, eye-catching objects dubbed "teapots," but be warned, serving tea is not necessarily their purpose. Though many artists are making functional, traditional teapots; other artistic adventurers are brewing up whimsical sculpture. Explore unique designs and materials. With the usual image of a ceramic or silver teapot in one's minds eye, how do you confront a teapot made with holes around the body? Or one made of woven fabrics, of silk with lace and buttons, wood, and coins? You do so with tongue in cheek and an intellectual, fine art sensibility. Dona Z. Meilach tackles the burgeoning activity of teapot making and collecting with over 450 dazzling color images of teapots from 227 artists in fourteen countries. She begins with a short history of why teapots evolved as late as the 1500s, when tea had already been consumed for generations. She introduces artists and talks about collectors, what they buy, where to buy, and ideas for displaying collections. And she plumbs her vast knowledge of artist's techniques and materials and produces an electrifying compilation that will keep you turning pages and coming back again and again. With teapot collecting escalating so rapidly, this book is a must for private and corporate collectors, decorators, and museum curators to learn who is doing what, where, how, and why.

Product Description: Dive into the tantalizing, eye-catching objects that are dubbed teapots, though serving tea is not necessarily their purpose. Meet 227 artists and think sculpture! Dona Z. Meilach tackles the burgeoning activity of teapot making and collecting with over 450 dazzling color images of teapots from fourteen countries. Some of the ceramic, silver, mixed metals, glass, wood, and paper teapots are not functional, but they are fun. Even teapots made of soft materials and techniques associated with wearable clothes, such as wrapping, weaving, quilting, and crochet, are presented.
