Tea time is made that much sweeter with the inclusion of these pottery tea strainers that are made exclusively for our stock by our master artisan partner. Every piece is formed by hand, glazed, then pit fired for roughly an hour and a half. The copper comes from submerging the still hot strainer in a bath of sawdust. Easy to clean and food safe, simply place this piece over your cup, add loose leaf tea of your choice, pour hot water overtop, steep and serve.
Our master artisan partner comes from a talented family of potters, who constantly strive to develop innovative designs and finishes. While this artisan creates custom functional works to our specifications for our collection, his main focus is on ambitious sculptural projects that have seen his impressive work displayed in galleries throughout Mexico and beyond.
Approximately 10cm x 7cm wide x 2 ½cm deep
Hand wash, and do not place in the dish washer or microwave. These pieces are food safe, however anything acidic like citrus juice or vinegar should not be introduced to the copper surface, as it will change the glaze from copper to green.
The price is for a single tea strainer. Given the nature of handmade, sizes, designs and colours may vary slightly from the featured product image.
