About the Teapot
This whimsically decorated teapot reminds me of a jokers hat.
As an art student in the early 1970s, form and function initially drew Loren Lukens to pottery. Over the years, painting has become an important aspect of his work. Loren’s shapes are extensions of traditional pottery with contemporary variations. His pieces have a dynamic impact when viewed from a distance and an intensity of color and detail up close. Loren Luken’s porcelain pottery is for functional use on the table or aesthetic use on the wall. His pieces are dishwasher and microwave safe.
*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.
