Lemon Yellow Triangular Cross-Section Reassembled Ring Teapot

15" tall x 12" wide x 5" deep

This teapot was chosen for the “First World Ceramic Biennale 2001 Korea International Competition,” which was on display at the Ichon, Korea, Ceramic Center from August 10 to October 28, 2001. This exhibition included 305 fired clay artworks selected from 4206 entries submitted by 2019 ceramic artists from 69 countries around the world.

The international jurors for this competition were Kimpei Nakamura, Tokyo, Japan; Tony Franks, Edinburgh, Scotland; Ron Kuchta, New York, NY, USA. Jurors from Korea were Chung Yang-Mo, and Lee Kyung-Sun.

The “First World Ceramic Biennale 2001 Korea International Competition” was one of 15 exhibitions held at 3 sites: Ichon, Yoju, and Kwangju in Kyonggi Province, and was the premier attraction of the WORLD CERAMIC EXPOSITION 2001 KOREA, a multi-event celebration of historical and contemporary ceramic art from around the world. This highly successful series of events attracted 6,060,865 visitors, including 210,815 attendees from outside of Korea. The Korean Government and private sponsors spent approximately US$100 million to establish and promote this prestigious World Ceramic Exposition 2001 Korea.

This teapot was purchased by Santa Fe, New Mexico collector Sandy Besser in 2002. In 2008 he donated his teapot collection to the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco, including the DeYoung Museum, which now holds "Lemon Yellow Triangular Cross-Section Reassembled Ring Teapot" in their permanent collection.

In addition to my unique reassembled ring teapots, my partner Susan Nykiel and I also make a wide range of functional and elegant pottery pieces.
