Counter It's a fabulous sourcebook with 500 of the most fantastic, creative teapots you've ever seen. From handbuilt to wheel thrown, functional to sculptural, round to square, traditional to funky, ceramicists will encounter a little bit of everything in this artistic celebration. Many find their inspiration in classic Asian designs, and have their own serene beauty and attention to form. Others take a more figurative approach, such as teapots with a small family grouping a nurse dressed in fetish attire, and the intriguingly titled "Dr. Seuss Meets Picasso!" Still more look to the natural world--birds, plants, rocks, and animals. Browse through a variety of surface treatments, from intricate carved forms to narrative painted patterns. They're all so stunning, you won't even have to drink tea to appreciate them!
