Jared Jaffe: Hybrid Teapots

Terminal B

Philadelphia ceramist Jared Jaffe creates functional teapots using a combination of images found in nature. He has a distinctive visual vocabulary where he assembles organic elements to create hybrid teapot forms: a vine-like stem becomes a handle, a pumpkin shapes the body, a banana is a spout, or a small fruit serves as the lid. The various natural parts are joined together to create unique teapots where form and function are in harmony.
