People who love tea know that the teapot is half of the ritual of serving. It's not just the flavor of the tea, it's also the serving vessels. Does it tell a story? Does it hold the treasured memory of a loved one? Is it something you saw being made and feel emotionally invested in? The best functional pieces come with a story that reminds you of a place and time - and yet also leave room for more memories to be made with the piece over a lifetime.
These teapots were glazed with food-safe, non-toxic glazes, and are dishwasher safe. However; these are not designed to be put on a stove with water brought to a boil; I recommend boiling your water in a separate kettle and adding the hot water and teabags to the teapot.

HaldeCraft ceramics begin life as slip-cast, hand-built, or wheel-thrown pieces and then are painted and glazed and put out into the world, all by the hands of one person. I learned ceramics like an old-school apprentice, at the feet of my grandmother who had a studio in the 1950s and 1960s, and many of the pieces I make incorporate now-vintage molds that she bought then. My pieces are unique, hand painted, and proudly made in my own home studio with confidence, mindfulness, and joy.
