Oh artist, how do you render it tempestuous?  If the tempest is inside, how do you see it?  Could a teapot be a metaphor for the tempestuous person. The fire that lit, the swirling steam, the forces of Nature held captive in miniscule space. Outside the serene blues, the limpid greys, a calm design.

Like a tempest in a teapot has always signified a fuss made about small things.  But what if you’re the teapot? Ah, a teapot is a chamber both strong and brittle.

Well, a tempest in art is always a good thing.  Everybody loves a good storm.  And perhaps you even relate to the fictional storm unseen inside a teapot’s porcelain walls.
