Teapot Tuesday with Laura B. CooperHand-building does indeed seem to be the theme of our blog posts lately! Today with have this hand-build wonder by Georgia based ceramic artist Laura B. Cooper!
We love the structural and minimal quality of this particular piece - especially the way Ms. Cooper accentuated the "parts " she used to build this teapot with clean bulbous seams, and understated glazing. The results are sophisticated and eye catching.
From her statement on the Long Road Studios website, Laura says "My current work is an exploration of form and function, and the marriage of those two elements with various clay bodies and surface design. I truly appreciate small acts of beauty in our everyday lives and strive to create things that I believe in as an artist as well as a customer. I never grow tired of interesting textures and love to find subtle glaze combinations that work to accentuate the overall form and small details rather than cover up or detract from them."
