This six-sided ceramic teapot borrows its unusual shape from traditional wooden tea cosies. Used to keep hot tea warm, such tea cosies were crafted with removable lids and carrying handles secured to lug ears on either side of the opening. This stoneware teapot is colored by a beautiful blue-green glaze that drips down the sides and pools gently at the base. The luminous glaze is speckled with imperfections and has a glassy, crackled finish.

From the collection of Frances and Gary Comer.
