small soda fired teapot with flat lid
This teapot has been soda fired in a 12 hour firing tended to by the artist herself. The handles on Leah's teapots are works of art in and of themselves. The handle is reminiscent of the Japanese style of teapot called Yokode Kyusu, meaning side handle teapot. It's a type of teapot where the handle is at 90 degrees from the spout, allowing the person pouring to pour with one hand, using their thumb to hold the lid.
This teapot has a built in strainer so that tea leaves don't pour through.
Leah Bowring did her graduate work in ceramics, developing her own philosophy on the fine art of ceramics and the form of pottery.
Thrown + soda-fired by the artist in Berkeley.
