In addition to my love for music, I am also inspired by musical instruments as works of art. I have crafted teapots by blending the forms of stringed instruments and French Horns. With the accordion, I’m drawn to the integration of form and function, its aliveness. One of the challenges was to depict this teapot as containing music in motion.
