This Asian inspired teapot it is an art piece, I am not sure where I picked it up. Since I always visit local potters and art shows it was likely one of these. The hall mark from the artist is difficult to read. It seems to have a salt glaze.

Talk about a lapse! As I was making my tea this noon I realized that it has been a while since I shared the collection. So here we go. This little white pot with the cherry decals is very, very special to me. A birthday gift from a dear friend several years ago it is a two cup + cup wonder. It has been used much and has developed some little cracks, that worries me. I let the water cool a bit before I pour.
