Inspired by the Mad Tea Party…. perhaps? The idea of combining hats and teapots felt like a perfect fit. I love both and really look forward to filling the gallery space with Ulrieke’s funky hats and Art’s amazing teapots. I am heading off to the studio right now to add the finishing touches to some of my teapots that will be on display at the ‘Mad Hats & Teapots’ exhibit. It all starts June 21st at 6pm.

Mad Hats & Teapots
June 5, 2012
Art Liestman is a woodturner living in Coquitlam, B.C. Art has been involved with woodworking for 30 years. Originally, his interest was in designing and making experimental musical instruments. After a few years of making functional items, he turned to the artistic side of woodturning. One focus of Art’s work in recent years has been teapots. In 2005, Art was asked to make a teapot for the famous Kamm Collection. Since then he has designed and made several series of non-functional wooden teapots.
Art has demonstrated at national and regional symposia. His work has been seen in numerous exhibitions and is available through several galleries across North America.
Art Liestman‘s wonderful teapots will be featured at the upcoming Mad Hats & Teapots exhibit later this month.
