Baltimore, Maryland - December 20, 2012 - Baltimore Clayworks is proud to be presenting 100 Teapots VI, juried by Jeff Oestreich. This exhibition runs January 12 through February 23, 2013 with an opening reception on Saturday, January 12, from 6 to 8PM. Admission is free and open to the public.

When asked about the subject of the teapot, Jeff Oestrich shared this,  "I think of the teapot as the soufflé of pottery shapes. It requires a knowledge of materials, technique, patience and trust. The kiln is opened, the teapot takes a bow and demands attention, or lowers it's head on the way to the dumpster. Why, when teabags have been in use since 1904, do we keep coming back to this form? It challenges all our senses and as with the soufflé it is comprised of basic ingredients all dressed up, intended for an occasion, and wanting an applause. After 45 years of everything that can go wrong with a teapot from stuck lids to spouts that don't pour, I keep returning to this idea as there is no other form that can humble and excite at the same time."
