Product Description

During Queen Victoria's reign, tea became a symbol of Britain's greatest period of expansion and stability. Every home owned a teapot, even if it was a basic "Brown Betty". Tea was no longer a refined upper class beverage, but the basis of a whole meal. While Charleston dancers and many Victorian glamours have disappeared from the scene, the humble "Brown Betty" has remained a firm favorite. Its origins go back to the to the end of the 17th century and to the birth of the ceramic teapot. In 1700 a small unglazed teapot made of red clay from the Bradwell Woods area of Stoke on Trent was a luxury item costing 12 shillings. Our Brown Betty teapots are still made from the Terracotta as used by the Elder Brothers in 1695. their method of making was 'jollying' but in later years this became slip casting giving a smooth finish and even thickness. Rocking glaze complies with US FDA and California proposition 65. Succeeding generations of Englishmen have proved that the Brown Betty makes the best pot of tea in the world. The shape of the pot causes the tea leaves to be gently swirled around as the boiling water is added thus producing an exquisite infusion. The red terracotta clay with its Rockingham glaze coddles the brew and gives the perfect cup of tea. Hand wash only.

Take 10 with Jose Antonio Bowen, Goucher College president - Baltimore Sun

What means the most when it comes to the memories and experiences of a modern day Renaissance man like Jose Antonio Bowen, the 52-year-old president of Goucher College. Moving to Baltimore with his wife, Kimberly, last July to take the job as head of the liberal arts college was the latest stop in a journey that started in his hometown of Fresno, Calif. , and led him to academic positions at Stanford University, University of Southampton, England, Georgetown University, University of Miami in Ohio, and Southern Methodist University in Dallas. Along the way, Bowen has written more than 100 articles and books on music and teaching. com, taken from the name of the book that won him the Frederic W. Ness Book Award from the American Association of Colleges & Universities in 2014. He's a renowned pianist, composer, award-winning conductor, and has performed around the world with... He dives right in. "When I do latch onto something, I do follow it to the nth degree," Bowen admits. "Life as a human is more than just the essentials. We want and crave stimulation, connection and – ultimately - meaning. That's what makes us human beings, not animals," Bowen says. "Humans are the only creatures on the planet who actually try to create meaning. He adds: "There's something more to life than what's useful or utilitarian…My car provides transportation. But there are lots of cars that are brown or square. I like things that have design and make me smile in the morning. Bowen resides in the President's House, a residence in the middle of the Goucher campus. "It's wonderful that we get to live here," he says, explaining that the home's downstairs is "mostly a public space," although he and his wife have the run of the entire home. Here's a look at Bowen's favorite things. Yellow car. On the day The Sun stopped by, road salt stained his convertible but didn't diminish its brightness. "I like color and form and art. Hence the yellow car…I'd had a yellow [Volkswagen] bug, which our daughter inherited. It's the car she wanted. When I went to replace it, I wanted to try a convertible. This one had style. Fountain Pens. "I've always loved fountain pens…Also different colors of ink, and the feel of the pen on paper. Writing a beautiful handwritten note still matters to me. I write about five or six handwritten notes a day to people…when I'm writing a note, I prefer to have a fountain pen. Crazy socks. Bowen said he started wearing crazy socks when he moved to Dallas. There's not a whole lot of variety, a whole lot you can do [to express yourself]. At some point, I noticed you could wear interesting socks that could match your tie and be complementary, not just be black or brown. It was the way to be the arts guy in the dean's meeting. "If you're going to wear cufflinks, then they should say something interesting…. And the ones that are gearboxes, Kimberly gave me. She's actually the best one at finding me stuff like that. Bowen built the instrument when he was in high school. After flunking a music aptitude test in third grade, Bowen says his mother arranged for him to learn the recorder. By middle school, he was passionately playing the piano. He was interested in composer J. S. Bach, but knew that Bach's original compositions weren't created for the piano. "He never saw an instrument with 88 keys, or anything remotely like that. If you wanted to hear what that sounded like, you had to go find a harpsichord," Bowen says. "There weren't any where I was growing up. I don't know where I got the crazy idea [that] well, if there isn't one, you make one. It didn't sound like that much work. It didn't sound like 4,000 pieces. The living room in our house was [covered with] the little pieces you see in a harpsichord. "So, the idea was that we had to use the art that was in the house. We were lucky that we liked a lot of the art the college had. 'Portia' by Grace Hartigan — that piece in particular — we were a little nervous about because [the eyes] do kind of follow you. Source:
