How many of us use artsy teapots for decoration? Hand blown glass teapots with blooming tea are used for centerpieces at dinner parties. Collectible silversmith and ceramic pots are strategically placed on well- lit shelves for display. And, when the lids break teapots become flower vases. Decorating bare walls with one-dimensional teapots are often forgotten. There are many artistic painters out there such as Carolyn Pappas that appreciate the shape of teapots as ceramic artists do. Additionally a pot of tea contains water, the same source as a still life painting with watercolours. Also, some use tea to stain the paper in which a teapot is painted.
