these pots will be going for the international tiger teapot show in shanghai, april 2010. i am looking forward for the event, my first visit to china!
this form, is in a sense is a continuation of my earlier "cat's cradle" shape. Watching my cats hunt has inspired this forms - the tense muscles before they leap on their prey and their acute sense of balance and flexibility. In these teapots I try to treat clay as the flesh, guiding the faceting in a certain direction to create movement; to keep the pots alive and moving.
