Juror’s Statement >>

Teapots are entrancing objects. They have a long and rich history that evokes social rituals and intercultural connections. They have long been collected and displayed, and ceramic teapots remain the choice for brewing tea, still commonly used though many ceramic forms have been replaced by other kinds of vessels. Technically teapots present the potter the challenge of designing and integrating multiple parts—spout, lid, handle, foot, knob—in addition to the usual questions of clay, surface, and firing. As such the teapot is a classic potter’s performance, in which the drama of ceramic inspiration and mastery unfolds.
