Ceramist Marko Fields’ highly detailed teapots often incorporate a visual vocabulary of “giant amoebas, gherkins and Spanish olives,” pieces of coral and religious offerings called milagros to relay tales of spirituality, mythology or even ecology. Employing printmaking techniques, Fields carves his intricate designs into plaster slabs from which he takes relief impressions, allowing the designs to appear in a variety of pieces regardless of shape or function.
