My flat is littered with decorative teapots (it’s one of my better half’s fixations). When I have my mates around she’ll give me clear orders beforehand; ‘Make sure no one touches my teapots’. What does she think we’re going to do to them? Have a big teapot party, torturing the unsuspecting boiler’s by filling them with a concoction of spirits. Man-handling their spouts and then smashing them on the kitchen tiles as we dance around their shattered pieces letting out a chorus of wicked cackles.
Having said that I secretly quite like providing a home to these creative little tea jugs. There’s something very comforting and familiar about putting a on brew, and to celebrate this familiar British tradition I thought I’d share my pick of tea-ware from superb contemporary design website bouf.com
