A New Year! A New Tea Pot!

Happy New Year! Out with the old, and in with the new. We warmly greet this new year, and National Hot Tea Month with a beautiful handcrafted pottery tea pot. Once again, Santa was good to me.

While vacationing out west this past summer, BIL David spotted this artfully crafted muted grayish green tea pot in a local artisan craft shop in Moab, UT.  Thinking he had my name for the holiday gift exchange, David purchased it for me, only to discover later on in the year he had someone else's name. Lucky for me! (Thank you, David!)

There are many little details associated with this pot. From the cut out spout, to the curlicue on the lid, it has definite personality. The gift shop Moab Made features an amazing variety of talented artwork by local residents.

On the handle there is a thumb rest that provides a perfect grip when pouring from this uniquely shaped pot. Can you spot the three little feet that support the pot? This artist from Desert Sun Ceramics had a fun time crafting this special pot. And it has found a loving home thousands of miles away in Pennsylvania!
