Those who appreciate the wonders of the underwater world will become instantly enamored with the Bottom Feeders series. It is a collection of sculptural teapots, cups and vases craftily made out of porcelain. But in place of simple handles and floral patterns, the Bottom Feeders series boasts tentacles, seashells and more.
Created by ceramic artist Mary O’Malley, who studied in Philadelphia and now resides in Long Island, New York, the Bottom Feeders series is particularly inspired by childhood memories and her newly familiar surroundings next to the sea. By combining the imagery of sea creatures with the elegance of tea time, O'Malley envisions a whimsical occasion worthy of such fictional characters a Davy Jones and Alice.
