In honour of the fortieth anniversary of the Art Gallery of Burlington, we are kicking of this celebration with an imaginary tea party with forty teapots drawn from the Permanent Collection of Contemporary Canadian Ceramics. Often considered the most challenging of functional forms, these pieces, ranging from the highly functional to the more creative, will demonstrate the eclectic variety of shapes, sizes, and styles that has made this shape such an appealing form for the potter to explore.
