Because of the various influences that affect this category of art, the styles of both the painting and the item being portrayed have many artistic options for modern artists. These styles can be as realistically charming as Del Gish's work 'Apples and Tea' or as whimsically graphic as 'Asian Tea Set II' by Jennifer Sosik. However, the people who appreciate teapots, and the art depicting them, find the wide range of styles ideal when it comes to their decorating needs.
Finding the perfect piece of teapot art for a home is largely personal endeavor, although it does help to be aware of the setting in which the work will be presented. Works such as 'Ivy Teapot' by Barbara Mock, for example, would be more attractive in a formal dining room or den while the pop art qualities of 'Top Shelf Cafe' by Avery Tillman is perfect for lending a warm, rustic feel to any kitchen. There are also works of teapot art which are able to be placed in nearly any setting, such as the 'Cream and Sugar' series by Alain Pelletier and other vintage works.
