About the Exhibition

Interpretations: 15th Biennial Teapot Exhibition celebrates contemporary variations on a classic theme—the teapot. For centuries the teapot form has been influenced by cultures around the world as the focal point for ceremonial and social gatherings.  A steaming pot of tea is a welcome invitation to conversation and companionship. Interpretations explores the universal ritual of tea, demonstrating a high level of innovation in all craft mediums that converge around the teapot. 

Eugene Delacroix  sums up this obsession best with, “What moves men of genius, or rather what inspires their work, is not new ideas, but their obsession with the idea that what has already been said is still not enough.”  We invite you to enjoy, with surprise and delight, these artists’ interpretations.

Stefanie Kirkland
Director of Exhibitions and Artists-In-Residence Programs
