A handmade clay teapot never looked so soft! We know it will be even more tempting to curl up and cradle this pot on the couch after you've filled it up with hot tea, but we recommend keeping it on a flat surface!
Sit back and relax with your favorite tea. Or have your new animal friend relax on a shelf in your home, greeting all who enter and waiting to be admired!

This animal teapot is NOT made for stovetop use. While you are heating your water you need to warm your teapot in some other fashion. The simplest way is to warm your teapot by filling it with hot water out of the tap. Make sure that the sides of the teapot are warm before pouring the near boiling water into it. Then you can steep your tea and enjoy ityour tea in the traditional manner.
When you are handling hot pottery ware do not place it on a cold metal or stone surface but on wood or cloth. If you keep in mind the bane of sudden and extreme temperature change your pottery vessel should have a long and functional life. Enjoy it.
