The intricate pattern on the teapot lid was drawn and then hand carved. The teapot and lid were thrown on the potter’s wheel and then finished and assembled when partially dry. After a bisque firing to 1900 degrees, glazes are applied with bulb syringes to different sections of the work, giving a cloisonné-like effect. All work is made of stoneware clay and fired to over 2100 degrees.
Size: 4-1/2″ wide x 6″ tall. Other pieces from this collection are shown in the picture - this item is for the teapot only.
The clay and glazes are lead-free and food safe. We recommend pre-warming the teapot with warm water before emptying it and adding hot water for tea.
