I don't mind a single drip in the pour as it is often the fault of the user rather than the design but I don't like more than one drip. I like a teapot that when full is easy to lift with one hand.

Here I've compiled my dream competition I'd love to judge these pots but it would have to be one of those unsatisfying competitions where everyone is a winner.
My first selection a Malcolm Greenwood teapot. Malcolm Greenwood is a Sydney based potter. His functional ware combines form and function. Malcolm's pots are designed to be integrated into life and exude calm and a quite authority.
