Iris Teapot is unique, decorative, and functional. Making teapots on the potter’s wheel is a complex and creative challenge! Each element is made separately and then assembled. I throw the body, lid, and spout on the potter’s wheel. Then I pull the handle directly from the pot. We want it to look good and pour well! Iris Teapot is well-balanced in its form and function. The body has a trimmed foot to mitigate the heat of the water off your surfaces. Use loose tea leafs if you prefer. Iris Teapot has a strainer built into the spout. A plunged lid stays more secure when pouring. Overlapping purple and cream glazes. Stoneware. Fired to 2100 degrees. Use this pot to steep and serve your favorite teas or as a display item in your kitchen. Serve sake or other beverages you might want to decant.
