Tempest In A Teapot: The Ceramic Art of Peter Shire softback published by Rizzoli 1st Ed. 1991.
The ceramic teapots made by the Los Angeles-based artist Peter Shire straddle the line distinguishing functional objects and pure sculpture. Shire has single-handedly transformed a lowly household object into a remarkable subject matter, with which he has revolutionized the ceramics medium. His brightly colored imaginatively shaped, and often witty designs are created under the influence of pop culture, the transformations of the landscape of late-twentieth century Los Angeles, and by the work of important twentieth-century artists and designers. Shire’s teapots were an important element in the development of the Milan design movement Memphis in the early 1980s, and continue to be shown in galleries and museums in the United States and throughout the world. Foreword by Ettore Sottsass.
