DESCRIPTION:  This ceramic is another from the recent works of Robert Rose. Both the vessel, and all of the art, are entirely original, and entirely from the mind of this profoundly imaginative surrealist artist. The finish is luminous. The narrative is sublime. In the artists' own words, this will give the viewer a sense of the symbology of this outstanding work: "Seek and yee shall find".

The teapot is symbolic of a ceremony, which many partake in as a deeper heartfelt reconnection to life. Many cultures have elaborate ceremonial customs. The viewer observes many puzzling elements, the imagery is simultaneously an inward/outward reflection observing our connection to life, and the pursuit of a spiritual connection and greater health. Woven through the mechanics of a surrealistic interpretation, this theme flows around the teapot inquisitively reminding us of what we are and what we are a part of.
