Artist's Statement: I like to have a theme for a series of pots to satisfy my creativity. When I decided to make these big pots, I decided on the Alice in Wonderland tea party by making these pots with miniature suggestions of the function of the pot at the top, such as the sugar bowl with an embellished lid, creamer and teapot. I even made a few teacups, as well. The pots went far beyond functional, but it was a challenging and enjoyable project. This pot suggests a creamer.
