Can you actually make tea in it? I am sitting here drinking a cup of tea and it would taste so much better out of a teapot with so much style. I am a bit woried about the handle though – I can see getting the tea in but not so sure about the water. And rinsing the pot afterwards looks all but impossible. Did you consider putting then handle on a pivot – you could certainly make that fit the style of the whole pot.

It is fabulous. I would be turning it around for different views and trying to figure it out!

Nice! Looks like a work of art! I’ll be watching to see what people say about this one!
It’s beautiful and interesting to look at!

Jon I doubt you will not see one like this at your exhibition, what a great artistic version of an everyday utensile, it will certainkly bring something very different to the show.
I think it is fabulous, well done

This is wonderful. I had to look at all your pieces on LJ and on your web site – fantastic!

My eight year old son is very interested in what can be crafted from both wood and metal. He was just as amazed as I was, and that’s saying a lot because he can be a tough critic!

Awesome. When I see work like this posted it always shows me how little I know and how much can be done. I see this as a work of art along with many other projects posted here on lumberjocks.
Thanks for sharing.
