The Teapot Redefined 2012

Please join us at Mobilia Gallery to meet the artists and view this extraordinary
collection of sculptural and functional teapot forms.
The teapot is an enduring symbol of hospitality throughout the world, and exploring the sculptural teapot form has been a source of inspiration for artisans throughout history. For The Teapot Redefined, we have invited a variety of artists working in diverse media such as paper, glass, wood, metal, beads, ceramic and textiles to add their own unique interpretation of the teapot form.
