This tea pot was made on my potter’s wheel using a white stoneware clay. Covered with a black slip with a carved surface design, the image around the pot reflects a landscape view of a river flowing by distant hills, it’s finished with a clear glaze on the top. The “sky” portion of the landscape suggests the ever present stars and planets above and comes to a peak with its fountain-like knob rising from the center of the lid. The rest of the body of the pot is unglazed, yet fired to a soft satin that softly catches the light.
Landscape Tea Pot
I use non-toxic, lead free glazes that are food safe on all of my dinner and tableware. They are dishwasher, microwave and oven safe (when pre-heated with the oven as appropriate). Hand washing, however, is recommended.
Preheat your tea pot by pouring hot tap water into the pot. To brew tea, add water after it has stopped boiling or just before it boils to avoid the risk of cracking your pot.
Do not pour boiling water into the pot.
