The Story Behind this Book:

The Teacup Book was a project many years in the making. The idea was conceived but it wasn't until the collaboration with clay artist, Sarah Cozzemera of Everyday Earthware that this project really came to fruition!  Once the pottery aspect was underway, artist, Janna Willoughby-Lohr, went to her Facebook page to ask her artsy friends around the globe to draw her pictures of teacups! The only qualifications were that the images were done in pen & ink and measured 1"x1".  The submissions began to roll in! After scanning them all in, Janna then began to write about each image and what it made her think about.  Each book is actually sewn in a different order so they all read a little bit differently.

Included artists are: Jennifer Tarbell, William Horvatits, Bryan Lohr, Dina Rivera, Nathaly Dulanto Bernuy, and Taimoor Ahmen Kahn.
