The breathtaking 500 Teapots launched a bestselling series - and it remains hugely popular. Now comes a gorgeous follow-up that documents the continued vitality of the form and of a new group of top international artists.

HASH(0x8c6648b8) out of 5 stars photographs of teapots 2 Nov. 2013
By Natasha - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The 500 series that Lark has been putting out captures artists concepts of teapots, or cups or plates or bowls etc. It is merely a gallery of photos of various artists' work. If you are looking for a "how to" this is Not the book. There are no detailed descriptions of the work, just size, sometimes temperature the piece is fired at, name of artist, maybe a glaze name... and that's about it. If you are looking for ideas or else - to get inspired or else re-think your own concept of "teapot", then you should have this book in your library. I use it as a referral in case i get stuck & need a "kick in the pants".

The book has 500 plus photos of 500 different teapots. No artist is featured more than (usually) twice and most artists' are featured only once. Therefore, you get a wide range of differing definitions of "teapots".

This volume 2 is better than volume 1. I was surprised.

I thought the variety of teapots were a bit broader in scope and reflection. I also thought the teapots were technically executed with more...verve...If you have volume 1, and liked it, this is more and adds to your collection of ideas. If you are trying to decide between one and two, i think this is the "latest" interpretation in the realm of teapots and ceramics.

The 500 series, for artists, is invaluable. At least a few 500 series should be in every artists' library.

Recommendation... if you are an artist: buy it.

If you are a beginner, this is not (necessarily) for you...yet.
Recommendation for beginners: ask your library to purchase the book so that you can go through it.

HASH(0x8c948fd8) out of 5 stars Potters everywhere could benefit from the diversity of designs presented in this book 21 Aug. 2013
By S. J. Sante - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This collection of contemporary teapots did not disappoint. The designs and workmanship are amazing. It follows in the tradition of the entire 500 Series of books.

For a reference and a design inspiration resource, you would have a hard time finding a better source.

Highly recommended.

Really loved this volume! Photos are luscious, and I even know one or two of the the potters. As a sometime ceramist, I am really enjoying this and have found some inspiration, too!
