Teapot: The Allan Buitekant Collection

The Jane Hartsook Gallery will present an exhibition of teapots from the late Allan Buitekant’s collection. This collection of handmade teapots represents Buitekant’s years of collecting and his interest in Yixing teapots. Made out of clay from deposits around Lake Tai in China since the 16th century, Yixing teapots are prized for their fine craftsmanship and for the way their clay enhances the flavor of brewed tea. Most collectors brew only a single type of tea in each pot to fully take advantage of this benefit. Buitekant passed away in November 2012, survived by his life partner Joyce Cunningham who has donated this collection in his honor to continue his passion for supporting emerging ceramic artists.
