Image of an old tarnished metal teapot, cut altered placed in a new configuration with the addition of lead which robs the teapot of it's original function


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.
