This series of portrait teapots developed out of my interests in functional pottery and figural sculpture. Each teapot is double chambered, having been sculpted on an armature, removed, hollowed, then reassembled with the interior chamber, supports, and connecting spout. They are all fully functional, pouring through various accessories or through bodily openings.
