Does anyone know of any good resources on the teapot? I have to write a paper on an object for my Comparative Culture (Anthropology) class. I decided to do it on the tea pot, in a holistic way. This paper is supposed to be a type of biography of the object. I have to answer questions like:
What is the history of the object?
How is it produced?
What is its impact on the environment?
What are the social functions it performs?
What is its political impact?
What sort of meaning does it have in out lives?
