This teapot has a contemporary feel. It holds 20 oz., and measures 6" in height to the top of the lid and 6" spout to handle, the opening is 2.75" dia. The long flange of the lid keeps it securely in place when pouring, yet is easy to grab. It has a sturdy handle and a spout with straining holes.

This piece in wheel thrown and made of a mid-fire porcelain. The inside of the teapot is glazed clear and the outside is glazed a lovely transparent lavender purple. A starry sky beetle is featured on each side, both are hand painted in black underglaze using a graphite transfer process.

The Beetle and Bug collection of pottery features designs inspired by some of my favorite insects. starry sky beetles, or Asian long horned beetles were introduced to the U.S. in the mid-nineties from Northern Asia. The shiny black and white speckled beetles have a unique beauty. They are hearty beasts, able to thrive in most climates. There is no known chemical defense and they have no natural predators. They are a dreaded pestilence to hardwood trees, which they infest, eat & kill. To eradicate the beetles, infested and surrounding healthy trees must be cut down & burned. It's one bad ass bug.

All my pieces are food, microwave and dishwasher safe, though they prefer hand washing.

This design is part of an open edition collection. The piece pictured may not necessarily be the piece you receive. As with most handmade work slight variations are natural.
