Teapots steeped in tradition - Contra Costa Times


WALNUT CREEK -- Drinking tea is a meditative ritual, one that starts with pouring the perfect cup. To maintain the serenity of the ritual, ceramist James Newton recommends using the perfect teapot. But enjoying tea becomes a much more personal ritual when the teapot is made by hand. Having just the right teapot not only enhances the enjoyment of tea drinking but also transforms it into a cultural experience, one that's steeped in tradition, Newton said. "That quiet moment of tranquillity when one is pouring tea and seeing the color of the tea is important," he said. Newton, a ceramics instructor at Civic Arts Education, will be teaching a new five-class teapot making session that begins Aug. "The teapot has to have the right feel for the person pouring the tea," said Newton. Students will learn about the rules of construction of the spouts, lids, shapes and handles that can affect function. Once participants learn teapot construction basics, they can then design their own teapot. Janice Morgan, a student in his ceramics class at the Civic Arts studio, said Newton's passion for creating visually beautiful and functional pottery is truly inspirational. "His ability to explain and demonstrate different techniques keeps the pace and variety in the class exciting," Morgan said. I feel fortunate to be a student in his classes and always look forward to the sessions. Newton, who's been teaching pottery classes for more than 20 years at different venues, said that as an instructor, he provides information then sees where his students can go with the details given to them. "From the time you make your first teapot, you learn the fundamentals of teapot construction, different aesthetics and shapes," said Newton, who was a springboard diver in his preteen years in Lafayette before seriously pursuing ceramics in high... What good is a pretty teapot if it isn't functional. Newton said learning proper teapot construction is worth the time and effort. "When holding the teapot feels so right, it pours beautifully," he said. "All the elements are pieced together to make it function well and provide enjoyment for the user. Nothing spoils a tranquil moment of enjoying tea quite like a teapot that splatters tea all over the place simply because the spout wasn't properly constructed, said Newton, who enjoys his own afternoon tea ritual. He's been making functional ceramic teapots for 15 years, continually exploring the glazing process and firing techniques. The teapot classes are recommended for advanced pottery students, he said. Janice Holve, a potter for nearly 20 years, said that as her potter's skills improved in Newton's classes she's become an avid collector of his work. "His functional pieces have an artistic flair and lightness few potters achieve," said Holve, Walnut Creek Clay Arts Guild vice president. She was such a fan of Newton's work that she convinced her husband to attend pottery class. Holve, who collects pottery from around the world, said she even took one of Newton's teapots with her to China to give to a tea connoisseur with an extensive teapot collection. After the teapot collector tested it, the teapot passed with flying colors, Holve said. "Jim's teapot poured perfectly without a single drop escaping after the pour," Holve said. "The vessel was light with a perfect thickness to keep the tea at the correct temperature. I have since heard that Dr. Chen uses this teapot with other guests. I have even been asked to return with another one of Jim's pieces for an associate when we return to Shanghai this year.

God, Aliens, Death & Teapots
God, Aliens, Death & Teapots
Published by Autharium 2014
ISBN 9781780254944,1780254946
69 pages

An eclectic selection of seven short stories involving, as the title of the book suggests, God, Aliens, Death or Teapots. Oh, and there's one about dogs as well…then again, come to think of it, two of them don't really have God, aliens, death or teapots in them at all. They're more about space…. So a more apt title for this book could well be God, Aliens, Death, Dogs, General Space Stuff & Teapots. Yeah, that just about sums it up (though it isn't quite as catchy).

Morocco teapot
Morocco teapot

The assignment was to shoot metal. It turns out that shiny round metal objects make pretty challenging subjects because they pick up everything! I picked up this silver teapot and plate in Fez Morocco because they reminded me of the ones that our Toureg guide brought when we were trekking in the Sahara for a week. Strobist: The plate is sitting on a sheet of black felt. There is one speedlight off to the left above the spout . A huge white piece of foamcore is off to the right, reflecting the 1st light to create the right-hand highlight. The second light is to the left, pointing up and left into another huge white foamcore to create the left highlight. A black card is behind the two lights to prevent the first one from spilling into the front. It was kinda complex bouncing all those lights all over the place but it was pretty fun and I learned a ton.
