Teapot Portraits

Part of Home is Familiar Solo Exhibition (2016)
Rotary Arts Centre

Teapots are important objects in many homes. They are often the gathering point for social and familial interactions and are a comforting source of warmth and companionship in good times and bad.  

Each of these teapots belongs to a person or place I know well and I have been served tea out of each of them.

 

In most cases, I asked friends to send me a photo of their teapot as well as the answer to the question “What do you imagine is inside your teapot?” In others, I thought about the person or place and imagined its inner world myself.
