About this item

Basswood, Compressed Ash, Pencils. 

"I have always been fascinated with mankind’s persistence in exploring the natural wonders of this world. I enjoy reading and exploring books about plants, animals, and any kind of life. Growing up in Brazil, I experienced up close the fascinating aspects of nature and today I find that by sculpting these pieces, I can continue to explore and study these wonderful life forms. This process keeps my mind open to new discoveries while feeding my spirit with inspiration that keeps me going as an artist.

My teapots are reflections of the whimsical aspects of nature. I enjoy creating teapots that are fun, colorful and representational of plants, animals or objects. Enjoy and explore my sculptures, and keep in mind that all these pieces are made entirely of wood. No other material has been used." - Tania Radda

Born, Tania Stupakoff, on 7/15/1965 in Ville Neuve Sur Lot, France. She was raised in Sao Paulo, Brazil. Her father is Otto Stupakoff a well renowned fashion photographer. Tania's rearing always involved the arts. Her parents were avid art collectors. Her uncle was an art dealer who introduced her to the many facets of the art world. She moved to the United States in 1985, and in 1989 married Hank Radda.

Even though art was a very strong part of her life, it took Tania a while to finally engage in the arts as a career. In 1996 she decided to pursue a degree at Arizona State University. She completed her BFA in 2000 and continued her education with an MFA, graduating in 2003. Tania studied under Tom Eckert, professor for the Wood Program at ASU, and had the guidance of Kurt Weiser, professor of ceramics, and Clare Verstegen, professor of Fibers, as members of her committee. Today Tania is an adjunct faculty at Yavapai College in Prescott, Arizona, where she shares her love for the arts and her expertise in woodworking with her students.
