Liz makes some of the most magnificent teapots you'll find anywhere.
Definitely take her up on this offer! The only thing better than the photos
is seeing and owning one of her teapots yourself.

The book "500 Teapots" has, well, pictures of 500 teapots with artists and
bit of info, but that's all there is. 500 color photographs. Definitely
worth viewing IMHO.
