This teapot form was created specifically for an exhibition of teapots by artists across the nation who work in a variety of mediums.  The criteria was that the teapot be a narrative work.  The piece contains a cassette tape dangling inside the enclosed form and the title alludes to the frequent inability of people to understand what another is saying because they are speaking in a language, or a “format” that the other cannot comprehend. The effect of the work is both whimsical and thought provoking.
