"Tea for Ozu"
4" x 6"
Artist's note - The title for this still life comes from my love of director Yasujirō Ozu's movies. One of his signature elements was to place a teapot somewhere in the frame of a scene and he always filmed from a "tatami" angle. You can read more about this talented director here. I realize that my teapot is far more ornate than the ones he used however it is intentional and was selected as a deliberate contrast to the simplicity of the composition.
