 CRUS-TEA-CEAN, A CERAMIC TEAPOT


Crus-Tea-Cean is a ceramic teapot in the form of a lobster.
  • This iteration in my Lobster Series is further modified in structure and design. I wanted to recreate a lid in the style of the original truly classic Maine red and white tablecloth. I intended to supplement this with a matched braided golden handle.
  • The teapot base is wheel-thrown and altered. A hand-built lobster tail, formed from templates made from actual lobster tail segments, is appended. The claws and legs are slip cast from molds that were also made from a lobster.
  • Construction sequence:
  • Exhibited at VisArts, Rockville, MD.
  • Date: 2009.
  • Size: 7.0" x 9.0" x 6.25".
  • Sold.
