Not Your Grandma's Teapots by Pat Wolff

Not your Grandma’s Teapots: PAT WOLFF

I majored in Art with Design and Crafts focus at Cal State LA, graduating in 1971 with minimal interest in clay. Several years later, I reconnected with Joe Soldate - my retired college ceramics professor. Taking a class with Joe at Creative Arts Group in Sierra Madre, I found my drive for ceramics. I realized that I didn't have to make a lot of pottery ware that most anybody could make better than I could. Wheel thrown ceramics tend to be very similar (yeah, round!). So using both hand building and wheel throwing I began to explore the teapot form. I appreciate utility -- because, what does one do with a non-functional sculpture? One lets it get dusty. So I make teapots that are useable sculpture! There are so many ideas that come to me, I don't have time to experiment with them all… I do like to tease, to pull on your assumptions. So sometimes I like you to think, "That's a teapot?!"
