Title of Art Piece: Urganamic Teapot
Student/Artist’s Name: Eric Jager
School: Lathrop High School
Artist Statement: This is a hand-built teapot. It is made of thrown slab. I then shaped it with a variety of tools. I choose this shape because I wanted to push the limit of the structure. The piece is more about the negative space within and how the actual shape of the teapot forms this. As for glaze I wanted to get a nice flow from dark to light values starting with that base burnt orange glaze and then creating a flow inside to out.
