The ‘Utter’ Mouth Pot or Vase by Thelermont Hupton.

These fun tabletop vessels are made of fine earthenware and measure 160mm x 100mm tall. The opening is that of a human mouth, compllte with parted lips and teeth.

In the words of the artist:
“The Utter pots, using the form of a mouth, are a literal manifestation of the concept of objects ‘talking’ to the user.

The finished piece is humorous and edgy. The parted lips of the female mouth may even be construed as sexual. They invite us to ponder what the rest of the ‘face’ might look like.

The Utter mouth pot is designed to be used decoratively or functionally as a vessel for flowers, pencils…”
