This exhibition of New Zealand studio potters ‘Teapots’ currently on show at Rick Rudd’s Quartz Museum in Whanganui. This diverse array of teapots has been amassed by Lindsay Garmson over a long period beginning at Driving Creek Railway and Potteries where he worked for many years.

Barry Brickell told Lindsay: "A potter must use all the clay techniques to make a pot."

The English potter, Michael Cardew, in the New Zealand Potter magazine (Vol 22/2, Spring, 1980) stated "A teapot has little to do with the efficient pouring of tea, it is first and foremost a poem written in form."

The exhibition will be on show until the end of June, 2020.

There are 95 Teapots on show until the end of June, 2020.
