Rita teapot

Rita is the first born of the Teforas family. Rita is a teapot of unusually large proportions. Teapots are generally small objects that provide barely 2 servings, which implies having to repeat the process of brewing and therefore leaving the table and the on-going conversation.
If compared to the majority of pieces on the market, Rita is of generous dimensions as it allows for 4 servings. Its spherical form contains up to 800 cubic centimeters, a little more than the contents of a bottle of wine.
Rita springs from a marriage between the craftsman's technique and the designer's creativity: a totally new piece, easily identifiable with its primary function and surprisingly reminiscent of traditional teapots.
The pieces are hand-made; after a traditional casting process, all the pieces are glazed, finished manually, and numbered one by one. The serial number and the year of production can be found at the bottom of the teapot. The manual production process is repeated with the packaging and its serigraphic stamping.
The enamel protects and waterproofs the interior. For the exterior surface we have preserved the natural finish of the terracotta and its sensual texture. With time and use, it will age gracefully and acquire a patina proper to cherished objects long in use, with which we establish a tender relation of endearment.
