teapots continued......

My second choice is the wonderful Jane Sawyer's tactile, warm, heavy pot.  Regular readers of this blog will know that I use one of Jane's pots every day.  The finger marks in the slip give me so much pleasure as my hand washes the pot out brushing against the marks in counter rhythm.


The other pot I own is a Phil Elson teapot.  Phil is also an Australian potter and this teapot is just perfect in every way.  The pouring is particularly lovely as is the shape which manages to be both contemporary and classic.

I can see why you like them both - each quite different personalities - the teapots I mean though I guess the makers are too :>).
I'll keep your comments on what makes a good teapot in mind next time I throw one.
