My thesis project was about teapots and the various ways they can be used. I choose three different settings in which people use teapots. I attempted to alter the character of the pot to be appropriate for the situation in which it was intended. In simple terms, the three kinds of teapots were: a large teapot for a group of people, a teapot for a single person for private time, and a breakfast teapot.
