Modern Dowry teapot (2017)

“Long intrigued by data interpreted in visual form, artist Courtney Starrett has created a teapot with bulges and curves that are an approximation of her current state of debt (concave curves) and savings (convex curves). Call a ‘dowry’ teapot to recall the family wealth that brides historically brough into their marriages, Starrett’s teapot refers to modern couples who often bring college debt and other outstanding bills into their unions today.”
