I made Taos 5-Cup 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.
I pull a handle directly from the pot and add a thumb stop. A trimmed foot elevates the teapot off the table.
The material is stoneware clay. The glaze consists of overlapping blue, green, cream, and gold glazes and is called “Taos”.
I fire to 2200 degrees F so the teapot can tolerate some heat! And it’s dishwasher safe as well.
Use loose leaf tea if you prefer. The teapot has a strainer in the spout. A lid top knot adds personality.
