It is a public holiday, 1st of May, 2017.
Idling at home and nothing to do, I took out some teapotd from cabinet to admire.
These are 2 sets of pumpkin teapots by prof Pan Chun Fang. I bought them while he was exhibiting his works in Singapore in the earlg 1990s. Each seg comes with 4 cups with matching colour.
Many potters have made pumpkin teapots in the past. But no one has created a pumpkin teapot the way Prof Pan did. Most would made the teapot in a perfect shape, round in every aspect ov the subject matter. But Prof Pan depicted pumpkin in a different way. It doesn't look that round, in fact it appears distorted in some part. But the distortion in the pumpkin does not affect its overall appearance. In a way, this distortion added strength to its beauty. It reminds us that not everything in this world is perfect. But sometimes a bit of imperfection can add immeasurable pleasure to us, it depends on how you perceive it.
