Teapot Frame

1_cool1962

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.

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 :)
