From a tradition spanning thousands of years comes a piece of art that is a wonderful mix of beauty and practicality.
Alperstein’s Aboriginal Art collection has come to adorn some adorable little teapots that feature the artworks of some of Australia’s finest artists. With their bold colours and amazing designs, these teapots do true justice to the works on which they’re based…and you’ll find them really handy too!
The son of a respected artist, Teddy Gibson was born in the late '60s in Yuenduma, Australia. In his paintings, Gibson uses an expressive and unrestricted colour palette to create artworks that give a modern interpretation of his traditional culture. He paints his Jukurpa stories - or rather, Dreamings from his father's side - that relate directly to his land and feature the plants and animals that inhibit it.
This gorgeous painting with its colourful, intricate use of traditional dot-work, is fantastically featured on this fine bone china teapot from Alperstein. The teapot has a two cup capacity and includes an easy to clean, detachable stainless steel strainer to make every cup of tea more delicious than the last.
But Alperstein isn't just
