Spring 2009 - Volume 13 Number 2

Pottery sculpture

By Patrick Ting, MD

Patrick Ting, MD, is a General Surgeon at the Rock Creek Medical Center in Lafayette, CO. Here, we see four photos of two complete tea sets. In "Spherical Tea Set," the top photograph demonstrates the tea set in exhibition mode with the teacups and the teapot forming a spherical sculpture. In service mode (bottom photograph), the teapot and cups are completely functional and the lid of the sphere forms the lid of the teapot. In "Spiral Tea Set," the top photograph demonstrates the tea set in exhibition mode with the teacups and the teapot forming a cylindrical sculpture. In service mode (bottom photograph), the teapot and cups are completely functional. The tea sets are made of earthenware clay, initially formed through a slipcasting technique, then hand glazed.
