I bought this beautiful handmade teapot last autumn. It must have taken me at least an hour to decide which one I would go back home with. It’s not so easy to choose! You have to take into consideration the look of the object, the use intended (what quantity and what sort of tea you drink), the size of the teapot (is it easy to pour with just one hand?) and so on. After much deliberation (the tea shop owner was very helpful and patient), I came back with this one.
But you know what? I broke the lid the very first time I used it.
So…. Two or three ceramic classes later and with the help of my teacher, tadam! Here is my teapot, with a lid again! It’s not as pretty as the original one, which was dark brown, much more delicate and a bit convex, but I’m still very proud of it. It was not as easy as I thought.
This is my favorite tea cup at the moment. I usually like them more rustic but this one caught my attention from far away at our village’s flea market.
Also, last Sunday was our 16th anniversary. This is a picture of Nicolas and I that must date from our first year together!
