Details

In Southeast Asia it is said that when Buddha's mother was about to give birth, she dreamt a white elephant came to her offering a lotus, symbol of purity and knowledge. When Buddha is depicted riding an elephant, it is believe it will bring good luck and health. Putu Oka Mahendra transforms legend into a mesmerizing ceramic teapot featuring a rattan handle.

"Well packed"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I bought this for my wife (who loves tea), hoping that it would be something practical as well as beautiful. It has exceeded both expectations. I will definitely hand wash this teapot, since the handle would not stand up to anything more rigorous, but it is a very beautiful piece.

"Great gift for a Republican Party member"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

Very cute and functional. Ive got this blue teapot for my friend who is a dedicated Republican. He was the only Republican in our all-Democratic company, always arguing with us, so the gift implied a bit of a joke. And he loved it: he truly liked both a joke and teapot.

This teapot is more lovely in person. The attention to detail shows, very nice finish, and the baby turtle is adorable. Holds the perfect amount of tea.
