Teapots come in all shapes and sizes. They also come in a variety of materials and I must admit that I have a fondness of pottery teapots that are almost always unique and individual in their style. I shared this particular teapot so long ago that I can’t even find it in my archives so I guess it is time to reshare.
Chris got me this one at the now closed Landmark Galleries in Mooresville, North Carolina. “Cotton” Ketchie and his wife Vicki ran a wonderful gallery and one of the things that he loved to collect included pottery teapots. This set was one that Chris bought me as a surprise for a birthday and it has such a unique look.
The pottery is marked Mangum and I believe it is from this pottery place based in Weaverville, North Carolina. They have a unique style and their work is so beautiful.
There is something about the pottery teapots that just fit in well with our mountain house I think. I have 5 displayed on our mantel and this one is stuck in a little tea chest now so I think I might need to rotate it out and place it on the mantle now. I know it was picked out with love and it makes me smile when I look at it.
