Visiting Hilton Columbus Downtown is a hot spot hotel for me in that it houses an art collection so it’s like getting free admission to a modern art gallery when I stay.
Each trip to the property I find myself wandering the halls and common spaces looking for new pieces and old favorites. This clay wonder is by artist Scott Dooley and its whimsy certainly caught my eye this weekend. Teapot II may fool you in that it’s clay and glaze, not metal and iron.
As a gal whose mother was Western European in every way, teapots were a staple in our kitchen. Shiny and smooth, Dooley’s Teapot II is a complete contradiction to the common household item. He takes inspiration from the industrial and the style brings the ordinary to extraordinary.
I found a YouTube video highlighting the artist’s talent. Definitely worth a watch.
