Teapot, 'Lingering Turtle' £35.17 Stretching his long neck, a turtle ventures from the safety of his shell to join the family at teatime. The curious terrapin becomes a handsome teapot, crafted by hand. Bali's exotic flora and fauna play an important role in this original design by Putu Oka Mahendra. Glazed in a cool green inspired by the rain forest, the piece is high-fired for eight hours, resulting in a hard, glossy finish. It makes an enchanting housewarming gift.
My name is Ronit Baranga and I am a sculptor. In the following series of works, I sculpted human mouths and fingers emerging from tableware. The blurred border between the living and the still in these works is intriguing. It is fascinating. It is daunting. It makes you think.
