Introducing 500 Teapots Volume 2

August 30, 2013, 10:07 am  Posted by Lark

Here at Lark excitement is brewing (pardon the unavoidable pun) over the newly published 500 Teapots Volume 2, a book that’s something of a milestone. As the companion to 500 Teapots, our 2002 release, Volume 2 stands as a testament to the longevity of the 500 series, to the integrity of Lark’s ceramics books, and—most importantly—to the genius of ceramicists at work today.

“The teapot prompts an astonishing range of responses in artists,” juror Jim Lawton notes in the introduction to Volume 2. “Few objects are more inspiring of innovation.” Indeed, the new collection is filled with daring variations on the traditional teapot made by artists who clearly delight in upending convention. The standard anatomy of the teapot has been ingeniously reconfigured (or dispensed with altogether) by many of the book’s contributors. But there are plenty of pieces that will appeal to purists—gorgeous vessels made in a classic mode that serve as reminders of the teapot’s ancient origins and bring a sense of the past to this remarkable new collection.

For a preview of the visionary work featured in 500 Teapots Volume 2, check out the images below.
