Each of these unique teapots are assembled from thrown and hand built elements, created in the moment. Once the teapot has been decorated with various slips and glazes and had its final firing at 1230 degrees, then the handle is handmade by Kate.
Using ancient traditional methods to slowly bend and carve the handle from beautiful wood sourced from the English countryside - a unique handle is created to match the individual character of each teapot.
This teapot is made in black stoneware with a matt charcoal ash glaze on it's exterior and a milky transparent glaze inside.
Approx. Volume: 575ml, H17cm, W18cm
IMPORTANT NOTE: Due to the nature of this particular black clay it is not recommended you leave liquids in it for prolonged periods of time eg. Over 2 hours. Always protect delicate surfaces.
Care: Hand wash interior with hot water. Wipe exterior with a clean damp cloth. Do not submerge handle. Once a year, the handle can be lightly oiled with any food oil.
