I made Teddy Bear 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 pulled the handle directly from the pot. Added a thumb stop for comfort. A top knot lid handle and brushwork add personality. A trimmed foot elevates the teapot off the table.
The material is stoneware clay. The yellow salt glaze is matte and subtle.
I fire to 2400 degrees F in a wood 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.
Holds 3 cups.
