A sudden thought that my pots may be around for hundreds of years sparked an urge to eternalise the soon relic plastic bag handle and petrol cap lid.

Made from a rough sketch in my note book, I never quite know if my whims will work out in practice, but this one did; the Relic Teapot won the Innovation in Ceramics Award at Ceramicus 2019 and the People’s Choice Award.

The plastic bag handle has since appeared on the Teapot Vase (exhibited at Pataka Art + Museum 2020), Carousel Vase (Ceramicus 2020), Stuck Teapot Set (UKU 2020) and the Tipsy Teapot that tilts and features a wine cork as a lid.
