Brewing Discord

Recently The OverDrone tuned into Craft in America on PBS. Richard Notkin was featured in a section on Ceramics. Notkin makes the argument that what is considered craft can also speak to issues . The piece in the picture above is actually a teapot.
I had seen Notkin's work in stills before but seeing them turning in space on the screen brought a new understanding of his work to me. Many of his teapots appear to be unglazed but on further examination are polished or burnished to create different finishes.
