“Teapot Reassemble “

by timpughartist


“Teapot Reassemble “,was made in Cleator Moor in West Cumbria on the site of an old Victorian dump or midden.
  The owners of the land had recently used bulldozers to crudely excavate the site, looking for old glass bottles to sell.As a result,lots of interesting bits of glass and pottery had been exposed
I collected up these remnants and arranged an outline of a Victorian teapot rather like assembling a jigsaw.It took a fair few hours to create the teapot and constantly had to be on guard for walkers and dogs accidently walking over the artwork.
I enjoyed the process of collecting the interesting bits and pieces which were poignant reminders of another time.
