Teapots, twisted and trendy, at Bellevue College show

A teapot adds a certain something to the act of drinking the hot beverage.

Transferring water from the rattling metal kettle on the stove to a pot of leaves or bags joins the drinker to centuries of tea lovers, whose rituals calm a hurried world.

Bellevue College Gallery salutes the little teapot, short and stout, with a show called “Extreme, Extraordinary, Exquisite … Teapots on the Edge.” No Brown Bettys or Revere silver here; the pots on show are pretty wild.

A good example is shown above: The Aurlia gouthroii “Multifidus” teapot, low-fire white and terra cotta earthenware, by Seattle ceramic artist Carol Gouthro.

The show is up through April 5.
