For folks near Cambridge, MA, the Mobilia Gallery is showing “The Teapot Redefined 2010″ now until at least November 6th. Donna Rhae Marder’s sewn lace and wire teapots are included in this exhibit, which “explores the possibilities of the teapot form” using a variety of techniques and materials.

Marder’s teapots are an homage to her mother, who passed away earlier this year. They are brilliantly crafted from her lace garments.

    […] The beige lace teapot pictured above is part of the 2010 exhibit. It, and three other lace teapots, were done by Donna Rhae Marder, whose name turns up often here. The exhibit is up through October, so I guess local folk had better hurray. […]
