Synopsis:

It's a fabulous sourcebook with 500 of the most fantastic, creative teapots you've ever seen. From handbuilt to wheel thrown, functional to sculptural, round to square, traditional to funky, ceramicists will encounter a little bit of everything in this artistic celebration. Many find their inspiration in classic Asian designs, and have their own serene beauty and attention to form. Others take a more figurative approach, such as teapots with a small family grouping; a nurse dressed in fetish attire, and the intriguingly titled "Dr. Seuss Meets Picasso!" Still more look to the natural world--birds, plants, rocks, and animals. Browse through a variety of surface treatments, from intricate carved forms to narrative painted patterns. They're all so stunning, you won't even have to drink tea to appreciate them!

Synopsis:

A fascinating compilation of 500 of the most creative and astounding teapot designs you have ever seen. A fabulous sourcebook for pottery enthusiasts.

These books are fabulous. I love thumbing through them for inspiration. The teapot one has such a diverse range- from chunky slab-built vessels to elegant porcelain and everything in between. Well worth the money, but compiling the whole set would require quite an investment.
