This teapot is a smaller version of a teapot I made last year, it holds a more manageable 20 oz., measures 5.5" tall from foot to the top of the lid and 7" wide spout to handle. It 's narrow spout and low positioned handle makes it easy to pour, the long flange of the lid keeps it securely in place. The spout has straining holes for loose tea.

This piece is wheel-thrown and made of mid-fire porcelain. The exterior is glazed an aqua green while the interior is glazed clear. Two octopuses are painted by hand on either side of the pot using a graphite transfer process.

This teapot is part of the Oceanus collection of pottery; Oceanus was the Greek titan who ruled over the world's oceans, so this collection features different creatures from the sea including sea horses, gold fish and octopuses. Each piece is glazed a glossy, pale aqua green, thin in application, over mid-fire porcelain. The white clay through the uneven green of the glaze reminds me of the green water and white sand of the Mediterranean coast.

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.
