The "Teapot" is an art form all to itself.  I think they can be fun, fanciful, and full of personality.  You can build a room around one or accent a special shelf or display area.  From my point of view, they are a stimulating design challenge.  The spout, handle and finial all need to work together to form a whole individual entity that says "Hey, I'm here"!
