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.
I bought this book for a friend. She had book on her wishlist for her birthday. I absolutely loves it. We have spent hours looking at all the beautiful and creative teapots. She has 500 Teapots Volume 1 and Volume 2 is a wonderful addition.
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.
I have the first edition which is wonderful and am a lover of teapots so this is a book that ranks high on my list. The designs are very interesting and helps to stretch you mind in different directions from the standard teapot form. I recommend this book to all who love teapots and especially if you want to have a great deal of inspiration.
All of the 500 series book I have purchased have been good. The photography is great and the items included always offer a wide variety of styles. I have the first 500 teapots, and this is a nice addition to my library.
Lark produces this "500" series which is a wonderful reference for all potters and artists.I have about 10 from the series and value the quality of the book itself in addition to its contents.
You really can't go wrong with the 500 series and this second volume of teapots is no exception. Beautiful photography and creative teapots. An eye candy feast fit for artists and ceramic loves of all levels.
Beautifully done book. Intriguing. Refreshing. Exceptional photography with captivating text. The artistry of what is considered a simple kitchen tool--a teapot--elevates the tea experience, even if only vicariously.
