Geoff M Searle Mid Century Modern Teapot

Mid Century Modern Teapot by

Geoff M Searle, Ceramics Artist




Geoff M. Searle is a Fraser Valley BC (Canada) Ceramics Artist. There were a few online sites with some information about his current ceramics (see below). I think this teapot would be a piece of his earlier work. His early ceramics are circa 1972 and later. I think this teapot could be classified as mid century modern. His more recent works are quite different in style, color and firing. 

I have copied a photo of one of Geoff Searle's oriental ceramic vases below. Please follow the link to see more examples.

Because I could find no information about Geoff Searle's early pottery I am including several views of his teapot. I always like to include a photo of the artists signature for reference.







Below are some of the sites that show Geoff Searle collections in their galleries.

Geoff Searle

Ceramics artist
Member Since: 
1975
 Born in British Columbia, Geoff attended the Kootenay School of Art in Nelson, BC. Originally, he intended to paint and draw but became enthralled by the clay process. He has been potting ever since 1972, producing lines of stoneware and porcelain as well as an extensive range of raku and pit-fired pieces much to the delight of pottery enthusiasts worldwide. "It always amazes me that my pots find their way all over the world and into private homes and collections and that people can get such joy and stimulation from something that I have created with my hands," says Geoff.
By no longer producing custom orders or volume production ware Geoff now more time to be creative and to put energy into one-of-a-kind pieces. Having a mystery about the clay continues to motivate the artist. "It is a great advantage to look forward to getting up and going to work everyday at a job that I enjoy and to create fresh new shapes and designs.""

Sometimes a special collectible is found and online research can often uncover the mystery of the item. 

Geoff Searle is a new to me artist and I certainly enjoyed seeing is current work as well as finding a this teapot from his earlier stoneware pottery. 

This teapot fits in with the organic themed pottery in my small collection.

  3. I was never into pottery that much but found a tiny raku turqoise vase last year about 3 inches high and now my whole bedroom was decorated around it. Love the teapot and being a BC artist now I can look for more of his craft!
