Tempest in a Teapot
Peter Shire
Published by Rizzoli, New York, 1991, 144 pages (colour & b/w ill.), 20 × 25.5 cm, English
Price: €38

Peter Shire is an LA-based artist whose subversive humour and playfulness extend throughout his work and made him a natural fit for the controversial and iconic Milan-based Memphis design group, of which he was a founding member.

The ceramic teapots made by Shire straddle the line distinguishing functional objects and pure sculpture. His brightly coloured, 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.

With texts by Peter Shire, Hunter Drohojowska-Philp and Norman M. Klein.
