Vessels | Pouring & Storing

A few weeks ago, I attended the Carnegie Gallery's opening reception for Maureen Landry's exhibition titled, "Vessels | Pouring & Storing."

"I have a fascination with teapots and all the facets that make up a teapot – the body and the many shapes it can take, the lid and spout and how they correspond with the body, and the handle that invites you to pick up the teapot." (Maureen Landry)

This black porcelain teapot, sugar and creamer would be perfect for a Gothic tea party.

The Mad Hatter would approve of these whimsical celadon green teapots.

Green and brown teapots with a matte finish.

My favourite: Dancing teapots
Save the last dance for me!


I'm joining the following parties this week:

  6. I'd have to say I'd not like any but the dancing ones since I'm a 'traditional' kind of teapot gal but interesting that there ARE so many different kinds!

  7. How whimsical those dancing teapots are! I first collected teapots because I have always been fascinated by them. I'm not quite sure why but I do love them and they always bring to mind ladies taking tea with their parasols. Genteel times that are so rare nowadays. I especially love the celadon green ones you've shared! Happy Summer, Margie!

  10. This display of teapots is very whimsical and definitely has an Alice in Wonderland flair! Love them all but not "me"! I can appreciate a lot of things without having them so I loved seeing them! Thanks for sharing.
