Living and working in studios there for three years, I learned to make real teapots that really work. All teapots have strainers inside so you can use them with loose tea or tea bags. Teapots are little puzzles for a pottery to work, there are numerous relationships you must get right for them to work. Balance, a good spout, a comfortable handle, a nice fitting lid, all are important to a good teapot. I think I make good teapots. 
I have also put covered jars in this collection which can be used for many things. As of late, I have made a lot of cremation urns. Although the covered jars can be used for kitchen use, I have sold many to contain the ashes of a deceased loved one.
