An extended yawning teapot. The lead solder is left raw, mistakes are evident, and the making exposed and celebrated. As a material, lead has a reputation problem. For a start, it’s poisonous and more commonly thought of as a material used architecturally. The teapot, on the other hand, is a domestic object embedded in rituals and etiquette. In Brouhaha, there is a meeting point where opposite hierarchies and class collide.
