Topiary Teapot by Karin Taylor

44KT – Teapot Topiary Cool Blues

“Topiary Teapot” as with all my geishas is a celebration of my love for traditional costume and the geisha way of life, which is a strict discipline, she adheres to all that she is required to do, and does it with grace and skill and honour. I have depicted many geishas but this is one that is very special, as she is in a garden, with is full of topiaries, one in particular is a topiary teapot. You can see it to the far right, and it seems to be pouring out a river. I imagine that this is significant for the geisha who must learn to perfom the very delicate tea ceremony with great care, balance and grace in such a delicate and beautiful manner.
