Belly Dancer Teapot  –   Karen Portaleo

Hi! I was scrolling through this beautiful collection and forums and saw my teapot! I made the Belly Dancer Teapot. It was sold through Ferrin Gallery around 2003. I’d love to be credited! I’ve taken a long break from clay work, and am scrolling through Pinterest for inspiration, as I’m wading back in. It has been an excellent reminder to me that this is my first love, and I’m thrilled to be reuniting with it. Thank you for including my piece amongst such lovely work!   (from a message I recieved from Karen)

    Great selection of tea pots! I think even the shape of the simplest tea pot is amazing. It’s already a natural jumping off point for even more creativity.

    I’ve purchased at an estate sale the quirkiest ‘sea life’ teapot I’ve ever seen. My eye caught it, and I thought “this is not the work of an amature!” Lobster like handle, long swiled shell type spout, sea creature/snail lid handle. every inch is detailed and polked w/tiny little indents and swill type design. With what appears to be a ’41’ drawn into the clay on bottom before fired in a clear/milky glaze. Any ideas of maker?

    […] I have been trying to fathom for ages what makes ceramicists succumb to quirky fits of madcap creativity and bold innovation when they become immersed in the creation of a teapot..  […]
