2 Clark, Garth The Artful Teapot
0500510458 / 9780500510452; This book examines the chameleon-like form of the teapot and how it has become not only an icon but an inventive vehicle for artistic expression. The teapot has drawn widespread attention from the world's leading designers and artists because it is what the French sculptor and installation artist, Arman, calls one of the key 'fetish' objects of our time. More than 250 teapots are reproduced in color in which the teapot's 500-year history is represented by key works from Yixing, Meissen, Minton, Wedgwood and other producers. 285 illustrations. ; Folio - over 12 - 15" tall
