CHENNAI: At first glance one might wonder whether they’re teapots or showcase pieces? With a lot of designs, T- Adda, an exhibition of teapots by potters of Puducherry and Auroville, gives buyers options to choose from. Inaugurated by Tomonori Minowa, Consulate-General of Japan, the exhibition has works of artists Adil Writer, Anamika, Ange Peter, Anna Morozova, Antra Sinha, Ashwini Bhat, Chinmayi, Gopal, Henk Van Putten, Julietta, Kratu, Krishnamurthy, Kumaresan, Michel, Puneet Brara, Rakhee Kane, Ray Meeker, Saraswati, Supriya Meneghetti and Usha Kane.

Teapots in various designs like Wild Roses, The Tulips, Angels and Violets, artist Anna Morozova has given more of a flowery touch to the teapots.

Artist Ange Peter says, “I learnt a unique technique in Japan and I’ve used it in my teapots. Pottery requires physical endurance,” says Ange, who began learning pottery under Ray Meeker at Golden Bridge Pottery, Pondicherry in 1991. In 1993, she went to Taiwan as an ESL teacher where she studied Chinese and held pottery workshops. In 1996, she came back to Golden Bridge Pottery to work as an assistant to Deborah Smith.

Artist Rakheen Kane’s works have cows and she says, “I participated in a cow show in China themed cow teapots.” The exhibition is on till March 31, at Prakrit Arts, No 9, Dhandayudhapani Nagar, 2nd Street, Kotturpuram.
