This tiny teapot only holds 6 oz., but is so sweet! It's is perfect for tea for one. It measures approx. 4.5” wide including the spout, it’s 3.75” tall, and 6” to the top of the handle. The recessed lid stays on when pouring, yet is easy to grab. The spout is open and the handle is sturdy and comfortable to pour.

It is wheel-thrown and made of mid-fire porcelain. They are glazed on the exterior a crackled bright green. The teapot has a band of clear glaze that features four grasshoppers that are painted in black underglaze by hand using a graphite transfer process.

In China grasshoppers are thought to contain the reincarnated souls of ancestors. They mostly hop, but can jump as far as 20 times their own length. They have 5 eyes, which allow them to see long distances, but also forwards, backwards & sideways. They are associated with happiness, good luck, good health, patience.

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

This design is part of an open edition collection, however I only have one left and won't be making any more this size. The piece pictured may not necessarily be the piece you receive. As with most handmade work slight variations are natural.
