This teapot was made with red and white clay. The two clays were marbles in order to produce the swirling band that wraps around the body. The exterior is unglazed. The interior of the teapot has a white glaze. The white glaze will help make the color of the tea being steeped more visible. The soft white glaze also allows some of the natural clay features to come forth. Another benefit of a glazed interior is that the teapot can be used to brew different types of tea, without any concern about the teapot being seasoned by any tea. The teapot lid is measured and trimmed with great precision to ensure that it fits nice and tight. The built in strainer has approximately 259 small holes that are 1 millimeter in diameter. This strainer functions excellent with all teas.

-The driftwood was found in the Eld Inlet, Olympia WA. The wood was carved by hand with small chisels. There is a soft texture to it that will stimulate many sensations. The wood is sealed with a thin layer of wood glue to preserve its natural qualities, and is adhered with a high temp steel reinforced epoxy.

- Fired in an electric kiln to cone 5 (2118 - 2167 F)

- All Pottery materials are non toxic, lead free, and food safe

- When I am working on these unique teapots, I make sure that I do not create too much disconnection from what is seen in nature. I intentionally avoid covering up the qualities of the clay. I want the person holding or viewing my work to feel a strong re-connection to earth nature.
