About the Teapot
This teapot is thrown and shaped into an oval to create interest and space for the decoration. I like to decorate, because it evokes wonderful memories of the "good" china that the matriarchs in my childhood valued. Oh, how I love and miss these women.

About Delanie
When making figurative work, the pieces always end up being a self-portrait, not in the literal sense, but they reflect my sensibilities. It used to bother me that this happened, but now I accept and embrace this reality. I am the person I know best, and I feel my life experiences are not as unique as they are universal.
When making functional work, I like to play. I throw and alter, make darts, turn the piece on its side or turn it upside down, and make hand-built additions. Lately, I have been decorating. I think I’m trying to make pieces while still being contemporary that would have appealed to my southern mom and aunts.

*Teapots that are sold must remain on display in the gallery as part of the exhibit until the show closes on September 10, 2023.  After the show closes, teapots will be carefully packed and shipped by September 26 or available for pick-up at the gallery.
