100% made in England - PAUL CARDEW TEAPOTES 300 YEARS OF CLASSIC ENGLISH CRAFTSMANSHIP

Paul Cardew's talents have been widely recognized by museums, art galleries and the British Tea Council for whom he designed a special range of teapots in the late 80's. His obsession with producing ever more imaginative and intricate designs has remarkably not sent him "potty". His youthfulness and energy bear witness to the naturally reviving qualities of tea. Cardew teapots are handcrafted using exactly the same skills and techniques deployed by Josiah Wedgwood all those centuries ago. Starting with the sculpting of fine details, then to three individual kiln firings, hand painting, and through to the final flourish of Paul Cardew's signature and a unique identification number on the base of each teapot. The teapots are designed to make real tea. Do not use with microwaves or dishwasher and only wash their exteriors gently with lukewarm water. Good luck!
