Discounted, Teapot in Aqua
Read the top of the Discounted page for complete information on marked down items. Reason for discount: Discontinued color (my former Aqua). Probably a discontinued style. Lid fit is a little loose.
This form combines my continued interest in fabric and metalworking as influence. I am intrigued by the hard lines of vintage corsetry, Elizabethan dress and couture costuming, and conversely the soft lines of Art Nouveau silver, Islamic brass and American silver; soft material making hard edges, and hard material yielding soft forms.
-Wheel-thrown, stamped & hand-built w. carved, slip-trail, and underglaze deco. Glazed with satin exterior & glossy interior.
- Approx: 11 1/2" h x 11 " l x 6" d
- The clay and glazes are lead-free and food safe.
- My work is both elegant AND intended for your use and enjoyment. While very durable, microwavable, and dishwasher safe, handmade pottery can need (and happily, deserves) a little more love to prolong its life than contemporary manufactured ware: Because of the abrasive nature of dishwashing detergent, which could eventually dull the surface over time, hand washing is not necessary, but recommended. Do not pour boiling, stovetop water directly into handmade ware. “Pre-warming” by swirling warm/hot tap water prior to pouring your fave hot beverage is recommended.
Note: If your order costs less to pack & ship, I reimburse overages.
