Teapot with Lid

  • Ragnar Naess, Teapot with Lid, 1974, stoneware with stain and glaze, Smithsonian American Art Museum, Museum purchase, 1975.127A-B

Luce Center Label

Ragnar Naess’s small Teapot with Lid shows his careful technique of decorating the simple surfaces of his vessels. Parallel sections of incised lines feed from the top of the pot down to the middle. Naess hints at what the inside of the pot looks like by allowing a thin coat of white glaze to spill out of the spout and cover the tip.
