Very lovely organic forms. I like the way the teapot spout wraps and swirls into the body.

I'll check it out sounds like a perfect book for a potter from Kansas.  I was taught the function of pottery in college was more important than the design.  I use to sell what I called screeching teapots at a gallery strictly non functional.  Some day I'll get function and design to work together.

Yes I do make teapots...they are a challenge ! They must be treated more as a sculpture...all the parts must work together as a whole. The book entitled "The Pioneer Potter" has great tips ! I use this often with my students. There is always the dance between form and function.....practice makes perfect.

Beautiful tea bowl! Do you ever make teapots, I made a bunch of coiled teapots recently and so far I am not happy how they pour but they look nice. I seem to be torn between function and design and I don't even consider myself a functional potter.  Denice
