Teapot Frame


Minimalism is more than just the design of an object.

It also encompasses the effort required to enable the object to function.

On that scale this teapot frame is a 10.

Listed below are links to weblogs that reference Teapot Frame:


A teapot can be a thing of beauty & elegance all by itself. The picking of it up and the pouring out of the tea -- a kind of meditation. Sticking it up on a frame (that reminds me of cafeteria chairs) might be a great idea for folks with arthritis, or anyone having trouble holding a pot steady, but it isn't very attractive. There are lots of better uses for that stand.

The design is lovely, and a nice idea, BUT..... look at the liquids being served up. First, a pale imitation of tea, then a sludgy cup of blackish goo. Not much enticement.

The designer's website functions poorly as well, but that's just a niggle :)
