The Taster by Kathy Waggoner

It seems an age since I last put any teapots on my blog.  It’s getting more and more difficult to find unusual ones that I like.  However, I have lately come across ceramicsist artist Kathy Waggoner and I find her work intriguing.  Her works explores identity, in myth, form and stereotypes.  Why do I like these – probably because they ARE stereotypical – but they have an indefinable edge to them.

every woman?

You can also see the artist’s interest in native cultures and her patronage to third world women.  Highly decorative and very tactile looking.  She is not really a teapot maker, more a ceramicsist.  A lot of her work can be seen here
