Tea time is made sweeter with the inclusion of these pottery tea strainers that are made exclusively for our stock. Every piece is individually created by hand on a simple wheel, treated with an exterior colour made from local river mud, along with the same burnishing process used to create ancient pottery found in local excavations of Monte Alban. Easy to clean and food safe, simply place this piece over your cup, add loose leaf tea, hot water, steep and serve.
Our master artisan partner combines her artistic eye with techniques that she learned from artisans in Puebla to create incredible works of art. Her creative practice simultaneously speaks to Mexican tradition, as well as a minimalist contemporary aesthetic. This particular line of delicately hued blush bruñido works are the result of our direct collaboration. They are made to our specifications, exclusively for our collection, and are a sublime compliment to any space.
