Stephen Robin, Teapot

Cast iron
Credit Line
Gift of the artist, 2017
32 x 47 x 12 in.

Inspired by the Pop Art movement of the 1950s and ’60s, Robin transforms ordinary objects—here, a teapot—into monumental sculpture. The decorative flourishes are playful, as is the cast iron material, which is more usually associated with frying pans. Walk around the teapot—it’s not as straightforward as it may seem!

Robin received his BFA from Temple University’s Tyler School of Art and his MFA from Cranbrook Academy of Art. His work is in numerous museum collections. He was commissioned to create site-specific sculpture for the National Mall in Washington DC and the Pennsylvania Convention Center in Philadelphia.
