This beautiful Terracotta Teapot is handmade in England from slipcast English terracotta and features a white tin glaze on the inside. A glorious example of English craftsmanship, the handle for the teapot is made from steam bent Oak and the turned wooden knob on the teapot's lid is also Oak. We adore the combination of wood and terracotta, and the simple and elegant form of the teapot. Designed by ceramicist, Sue Pryke, the teapot holds four generous mugs of tea. Each piece of the teapot is individually handmade and as such there will be slight changes in each piece, which is indicative of the materials and the hand made processes. Sue Pryke is a British homeware designer who has designed her own tableware collection (click here to see) after having had a successful career which has involved collaborations with the likes of Virgin Atlantic, John Lewis and Marks and Spencer's.
Sue Pryke is a British homeware designer, who started her journey into ceramics at a small pottery in Lincolnshire. After graduation Sue's first job was at Wedgwood as a shape designer, guided by the design team she was taught to understand the breadth of ceramic form. Since then Sue has had a successful career which has involved collaborations with a wide range of clients, from Virgin Atlantic to High Street retailers such as John Lewis, Marks and Spencer's and prestigious manufacturers such as Wedgwood and Royal Doulton.
Sue is inspired by the everyday and the ordinary; material qualities, textures and the interaction we have with objects. Recently Sue wanted to create her own collection of objects that sit comfortably in the home, that aren't awkward, audacious or tricky to use or care for, but are familiar, have fluency and sit effortlessly. To bring this range together she collaborated with small factories and studios in England working with traditional craftsmanship, materials and techniques to make high quality products made by hand.
