This Anne Kraus teapot has surface imagery of interior and exterior views that are complemented with two text panels. One enigmatic passage is visible in the photo. The other reads: “There is a war nearby and a few bombs are reaching here. And now a storm approaches also. I start to follow some people who are running to safety but then I figure that that is their space and not mine.”
