I made Black Tie Teapot by throwing the individual elements on a potter’s wheel and then assembling those elements:  Body, spout, and lid.  All three must work together in order to have a well-balanced and pleasing teapot.  Black Tie Teapot takes its name from the black matte glaze with cream accents.  Okay, so it’s not black black, it’s more of a charcoal black, but you get the idea.  It’s a tailored, sophisticated teapot.

I pulled the handle directly from the pot. Added a thumb stop for comfort.  And the top knot lid handle adds personality.  A trimmed foot elevates the teapot off the table.

The material is stoneware clay.  The black matte glaze has some texture.   Cream color on the rim, spout tip, and finial adds a touch panache.

I fire to 2200 degrees F in an electric kiln so the teapot can bear some heat!  And it’s dishwasher safe as well.

Use loose leaf tea if you prefer.  The teapot has a strainer in the spout.  Use daily and display when not needed.

The quintessential teapot.  A quick and smoothe pouring spout.  Each part well-balanced and beautifully functional. The form and surface well-integrated and aesthetically satisfying.  The handle comfortable.

Holds 5 cups.
