David Lawrence tells a story about his grandmother, born in an age very different from our own. Neighbors looked out for each other and there was no need to lock the doors. The one time her faith in human nature was shaken was the afternoon she brought a friend over for tea. As she entered the kitchen, she heard a rustling in the cupboard containing the teapot in which she kept her “housekeeping” money. Fearing felony, she armed herself with a rolling pin. The rustling was caused by no more than the family cat casing a mouse. The teapot fell earthward and shattered, the mouse went free, the cat was disgruntled and the ladies had tea from a teabag. The pattern on the sides of the teapot reveals the artist’s trademark acorn. The teapot contains two heart-shaped teabags, a modern invention abhorred by loose leaf aficionados, including David’s grandmother. A rare variation of 200 signed and numbered pieces feature a dog inside the teapot.
