Quirky TEAPOT and CUPS - Lynn Turner, USA

Post by JKRooney on June 16th 2016, 2:41 pm

Hi you all, and thanks for letting me join.

I did a search in the Marks and Labels section first, but don't see any info on this potter.

This looks more like porcelain, but I think qualifies as Studio Pottery/Ceramic.
Totally bizarre organic form teapot and 2 teacups?
I found in a consignment shop in Albuquerque NM. I couldn't weasel any info about the consignor out of the saleslady, but I tried.
Signed with a copyright mark and "80", then TURNER, then '82.
There are a LOT of Turners out there making teapots. Not all of the artists show a photo of their signature online though so it's hard to know who made this.
I would love to know if anyone recognizes this quirky set.

I found out they were made by Lynn Turner - there's an exact set like this in the Smithsonian :)

I have a link to the Smithsonian listing for you, but unable to post it for a few more days apparently (new member rule). :)
