Teapots: An Invitational - Josh DeWeese Bozeman, MT

Josh DeWeese Teapot $150
wood-fired salt/soda glazed stoneware (4" x 6" x 4")

I am interested in how pots can be used to bring art into our lives, enhancing our experience with food, adorning our homes, and providing a necessary ritual to nourish our soul and mind as well as our bodies. 
 I enjoy the intimacy of this small-scale teapot, and its association with our notion of comfort, reminding us to take a moment for a cup of tea, on our own or with a friend.
