Lot 75    

Ah Leon, Stoneware Teapot
2010, Cowans+Clark+DelVecchio Modern Ceramics
(Born 1953, China)
Teapot, 2002
Stoneware; ht. 18.5, wd. 9.75 in.

Ah Leon began his career by exploring centuries of the mimetic technique by the Yixing potters ("purple earth") of China. Exposure to the work of Richard Notkin lead him to innovate. In his monumental teapots, the work is informed not only by Chinese clay traditions, but also by his knowledge of bonsai, the growing cycles of trees and the scarring of their surfaces by water and wind. The current owner commissioned the work directly from Leon in 2002. (See also Lot 74)
