The lid is cast directly from a sea urchin that we purchased from a retail “shell shop” on the southern Oregon coast. It has a safety catch that slips under the lip of the teapot body and securely fastens it during pours. With painstaking sculptural detail, we then mimicked the sea urchin’s distinctive natural bumps and pattern array onto the teapot handle and spout, as well as extending the sea urchin design in a contemporary sweep across the bottom sphere of the teapot’s 8 cup (64 ounce) body.
Tea pours without burble or drip from the particularly engineered spout opening. The natural insulating properties of porcelain help maintain either hot or cold fluids for longer than other materials, and the off-white glaze provides a warmth to the presentation that we think you’ll enjoy.
The teapot balances naturally as you take it by the handle, and with its 11″ widest portion to complement its 7″ height and 8″ circumference, you’ll find this teapot an eye-fetching beauty to add to your collection.
