This beautiful teapot comes from a collaboration between two artisans: David Birch, pioneering ceramic designer and director of London Pottery Company, and Kaffe Fassett, a renowned textile artist whose lively, colorful designs have delighted admirers for decades. The result is a teapot that displays both artists’ expertise in clear detail, while bringing their disciplines together into a complete, unified piece. The teapot, with its gently geometric form, is a thing of beauty in itself. Add Fassett’s playful, folkloric pattern into the mix, and form and function become one: the sloping sides act as canvas for the vividly symmetrical motif. The collection includes six of Fassett’s unique designs. Each is combined with a subtle glaze, which has itself been carefully selected to complement and enhance the detail of the wrap-around textile-based pattern. The teapot features a built-in stainless steel filter with a fine mesh that provides exceptional brewing. The hinged lid and wide handle add ease and comfort, while Birch's perfected dripless spout make for the perfect pour. This 4-cup teapot makes an excellent Mother's Day gift, Christmas gift, housewarming gift or birthday gift.

If you've ever daydreamed of moving to Taiwan to immerse yourself in tea and culture, this week's interview is for you. Emilio Delpozo moved to Taiwan several years ago with the intention of studying Chinese medicine and found himself enraptured with tea, tea culture, and the local pottery techniques. He has built up a deep relationship with tea through working at a tea house, and learning traditional pottery techniques. He has started The Jade Leaf to sell unique Taiwanese teas and his own stunning teaware. He's been seeking out tea through word of mouth, even taking a scooter around tea farming areas to discover the best he can find. Now that so many people are interested in tea it made sense that I share all the great tea I'm drinking with people outside of Taiwan. There's so much good tea in Taiwan ands there's much more variety than you would think. It seems that some people like to think they know everything about tea and have everything neatly categorized in their mind, but there's so many random tea variations to be found in Taiwan. I'm always finding new teas that I've never even heard of. When and how did you first discover tea. I first discovered tea 16 years ago when I was doing a clinical internship of Chinese medicine in Nanjing, China. I saw many people on the street walking around with glass jars half full of green tea leaves. I believe many people in the west now call that method of brewing grandpa style. At that time in China they had thermos’ with hot water in every room in the building making it very convenient to drink tea anywhere, anytime. I was intrigued by this and realized that if so many people were doing it, it must be good. That led me to the tea shops. Inside the tea shops were large glass jars filled with fresh bright green tea leaves. You could lift the lid and smell the fragrance of the tea leaves. I was really into tea by the end of that trip. I bought lots of tea, a couple double walled glass jars and a tea set to take home. From then on I could be seen roaming the halls of the Chinese medicine campus in San Diego that I was attending with a glass jar full of tea leaves, and I've been drinking tea every day since then. How do you discover the teas you drink. Sometimes a friend who knows that I like tea will connect me with a family member who grows tea. If I like it I'll go check out the farm and buy tea from them. Tea is a pretty big industry in Taiwan so it's quite common that people know someone who grows tea. Another way I find tea is by going directly to tea growing areas, renting a scooter, then exploring different farms, meeting the growers and trying the tea. I've been doing this for years but I've only come across really good tea a couple times this way. All the tea I buy is from small family run farms. It’s an interesting thing that when I find a grower who makes good tea, we also get along very well. After 8 years in Taiwan I’m pretty fluent in Chinese which is crucial for making contacts. I like to get to know the grower, check out their farm, understand how and why they grow tea, how they learned to make tea etc. and make a good connection with them. In Chinese culture everything works around connections with people or “guanxi” as it’s called here. To build this connection takes patience and understanding. Once it this connection is established many more things become possible. In the tea industry, this includes the growers being willing to share their best tea or their collection of aged tea. These teas don’t just go to anyone who has the money to pay for them, you must be connected to the right people. There is a very limited amount of these and you have to have a good connection to be able to receive them. Your pottery is beautiful. Why did you start creating pottery. I got into pottery because of tea. I had always wanted to try making pottery and since getting into tea even more so. By chance I came across a small studio near my house. I told my teacher that I wanted to learn how to make teapots. I worked really hard at it and in a few weeks I was already making teapots. I actually sold one of the first teapots I made to Taiwanese friend who runs a tea business. You mentioned to me that the process of creating a teapot in Taiwan is very labor intensive due to high standards. Source: Tea Happiness

The important question was: How much pottery could we buy before we had to return to the ... Soup ladles and tea-bag holders, spoon rests, teapots and covered casserole dishes were piled high, and every which way on the shelves or in dusty boxes on the ...
