Salada Teapot

teapotSalada Teapot, gouache, 6 x 6 inches (15 x 15 cm), 09/08/11

The route from Bennington through New York is less traveled than Route 7 and therefore a nicer drive. On my return trip in August I turned the car around to stop at the sight of a weathered woman sitting in front of an antiques store. Her shop contained a vast collection of objects in several crowded rooms which she complemented with a robust set of political views sharply critical of recent news. She had enough on her mind in need of sharing for me to have time to find this small yellow ceramic teapot, offered at a significant discount due to our partisan sympathies, stamped underneath with the name Salada.
