Stone Prancer Teapot

Susan Farrar Parrish left corporate America in 1981 to become a sculptor. Today, museums and corporations such as Glaxo and SAS display her glazed clay vessels and vases. This one-of-a-kind teapot is part of her new Stone Prancer collection; its colors and designs were inspired by the landscape of Sundance, Utah. Smooth stones collected from an area creek serve as the base for her works. Parrish used gold-filled wire to accent the top of this piece, which took two weeks to build by hand.
