When I find myself lusting after teapots, it can only be satisfied by a unique collection, such as Richard Notkin’s creations. I mean, these are definitely teapots to start a conversation over.

When asked about his work, Richard Norkin responded "As Andre Malraux observed, "Art is a revolt against man’s fate" Need I say more?" His reinterpretations of traditional Yixing pottery is also a reinterpretation of the traditional teapot. He has created social commentary sculptures that are a vessel for tea.
