These highly original teapots from ceramicist Ray Bub are absolutely amazing!  I’ve never seen anything quite like these before.

The artist has really thought out some of them: others seem to have evolved: he seems to have just gone with gone with creative  flow (so to speak).  The results are amazing.  This one (above) is full of fluidity and movement. (and thats without the tea!)

The aritst gives a  detailed journey of his teapots: from their conception to their execution.  His techniques and glazing procedures are outlined here, along with lots of other amazing works.
