Carson Culp for Storied Objects
Where there is fragility, strength must also exist, and this Stoneware Teapot beautifully protects the delicate tea leaves while preparing them for a perfect cup. Adding to its inherent heirloom quality, the surface texture of the teapot is rippled with lines created by the potters' hands. This piece toes the line of decorative sculpture without ever sacrificing its intended function.
Dimensions: 8.25" (w) x 6.25” (h)

Carson Culp x Storied Objects
Carson Culp has a simple goal: to craft honest and essential ceramics using traditional glazes and hand-throwing techniques. Having attended artist residencies at Leach Pottery and the Mashiko Museum for Ceramic Art, his work combines the organic and subtle beauty of English studio pottery and Japanese folk craft (Mingei.) Using a variety of decorating techniques, such as glaze trailing, wax resist, repeat brush-stroke patterns, and spoon glazing, Culp embellishes his forms as if a blank canvas. With thousands of hours behind the potters' wheel, every piece that comes out of Culp's Portland-based studio stands out for its simplicity, versatility, and beautiful functionality.
