This is both a practical and beautiful approach to the teapot. As well as covering the essential making methods such as throwing, slab-building, press-moulding, slipcasting and more, it also looks at the aesthetic and functional aspects of teapot design. A large part of the book will look at artists and their work - covering both functional and non-functional teapots. The final chapter will also be a gallery of teapots, making this a useful asset for the contemporary collector. This is a fantastic book, that will capture the imagination of makers, collectors, and all other fans of the teapot.
