Something for everyone- quirky to unusual
Over the month of August and some of September, Sydney residents are in for a treat in Glebe with the Sydney Teapot Show. Local group, the Clayworkers, are holding their 29th Annual Teapot Show of quirky craftsmanship. The Clayworkers have been together since 1982, and are a non-for-profit group of potters. They hold this show all over Australia with designs that range from functional to ridiculous!

The thing that makes Clayworkers work so unique is the vibrant people who create it. They thrive of not only the gallery and the chance to exhibit their work, but the members of the cohort who they associate with, learn from and enjoy their passion with.

Some lovely creative tea pots there. I have two friends who would both love the sunflower teapot.
