Teapots are a challenging and fun item for a potter to make. This is the first full conventional style teapot I have created and I couldn't be happier with the results and I know you will be too. This lovely light olive green specimen was wheel-thrown and pieced together with love and attention to detail. The pot's spout has a built in sieve for brewing and steeping either bagged or loose leaf teas. It pours well with virtually no dripping. The tea bowls are a simple but classic shape without handles and have a gorgeous runny effect of the glazes.

Celedon glazes are known for their crazing effect (fine network of cracks) in the glaze which creates a beautiful antiqued look to the pot. I dipped the pot in a second glaze after using a resist and together the two glazes created the white speckled area you see at the center of the pot. The inside of the pot is the same olive color. The lid has a flange which helps hold it in place while pouring. This set comes with everything shown in the pictures including the bamboo handle.
Each cup holds two full refills. The cups vary slightly in shape.

**Do not use on an open flame. Your teapot is meant for brewing and steeping. Since this pot has a bamboo handle I recommend hand-washing and not using in the microwave. However, if you choose to remove the handle your teapot will be fine in the dishwasher and microwave.
