I hesitate to speak for her, but Bacia Edelman worked, if not
exclusively, mostly with
teapots for some time. Her work is striking and immediately
identifiable as Bacia's.
It's also often non-functional which is part of its mystique.

All of the above is strictly my opinion, but I've been following
Bacia's work since I joined the
Clayart ranks so I at least qualify as a Major Fan.

In the Mojave Desert of California U.S.A. where Mojo and Jack are
back&forth back&forth
around&around across my feet chasing one another. First Jack tumbles
past in front of
Mojo...... then they return with Mojo in front and Jack chasing....
on and on they go.
growling&snarling viciously the whole time. When I met Mighty Mac,
Jack's sire, the
breeder pointed out that MM sometimes "fooled" visitors into thinking
he was vicious
with his growls and showing of teeth, but that he was really laughing
or at least
smiling. Uh huh......
