Kate Anderson's Knotted Tea Pots

Kate Anderson
Artist Kate Anderson manages to tie herself up in knots every single day, and if she doesn't, something is definitely wrong. She is one of the few masters of knotting, a craft similar to macrame, but so much more. Her work includes high design, tricks of the eye, and hundreds of hours per piece to create a one-of-a-kind work on a teapot. Kate tells us her immersion into the unusual world of knotting occured when her paint colors all turned brown.

Great article with pictures of Kate’s Teapots in the June/July Home Companion magazine. If you are a member you can read it online. Just go down the page to find the link for the article. There also is a podcast interview with Kate at that same link. Wonderful work and a great artist and person. Check it out.
