Luce Center Label

The individual parts of this teapot are designed very simply, but the smooth silver sets up a range of reflections between the body, the spout, and the two parts of the handle. The restrained form becomes a kind of sculpture that leads the eye in different directions. The cloisonne enamel set into the knob adds to the reflections with shifting areas of color.
