This sculpture was commissioned by the Kamms for their teapot collection. Jeffrey Conroy created a figurative sculpture in the classic teapot pose – “here is my handle, here is my spout”. The surface is a collage of photographs of people drinking tea. Conroy sourced these photos through Facebook where he asked for people to send images of themselves drinking tea. He received over 450 responses from people all over the world.
