Large Stoneware Teapot - textured with caned handle -Soft Creamy Yellow / Handmade Wheel Thrown Pottery
Perfect for sharing tea with a group of friends or family. This large teapot comfortably holds 40 oz (1183 ml) and pours beautifully. A ceramic pot keeps second servings warm while drinking the first cup.
Brew tea in the teapot but do not heat water in the teapot directly on the stove. Use a kettle to heat your water to boiling and then fill your teapot with hot water and tea leaves. It has a built in strainer so you can use loose tea. You can also use boiling water to pre-heat the teapot before brewing in order to keep your tea warm longer.
The surface of this handmade wheel thrown stoneware teapot was textured with a comb before shaping the belly of the pot from the inside. The teapot body was glazed in a soft creamy yellow glaze that was rubbed off and then overlaid with a rutile white glaze giving the finish an almost stone like appearance.
The cane handle was hand-caned onto the pot. The interior is glazed in the rutile white which gives its glossy white finish hints of blue and lavender.
Capacity 32 oz - 40 oz. (1183 ml)
This piece was handmade on a potter's wheel out of stoneware and fired to over 2300 degrees F.
I do recommend hand washing this item.

I am very happy with the teapot Terry created and know we will treasure it for years to come. I would definitely work with her in the future and hope to!
