100 TEAPOTS V

I'm excited to have 2 of my wall hanging teapot pieces in the 100 Teapots V show at Baltimore Clayworks.
This is a national show, juried by Nick Joerling.  There is a beautiful slide show of the work on their web site. 

Jurors Statement:
My dictionary says a teapot is “A covered pot with a spout.” I smile at the judiciousness of that definition, like characterizing a human being as an upright body with a face. Buried in both succinct summations is the rich unending variety of mechanics, spirit, aesthetics, emotion, intellect. I like the blue-collar aspect of pots, that they do the every day work of carrying, containing, delivering, but can also “step out” and stimulate the mind and imagination. I like the pots that make good use of the constraints of utility, and I like the pots that push against those boundaries: pots that entertain some dicey possibilities. In my own studio I hope for pots that have qualities of sensuality, empathy, humor and risk.    -Nick Joerling
