Clinging to a voluptuous teapot, a tiny tree frog puffs his throat and chirps a call to teatime. Glazed in a rich blue-green, this exquisite teapot by Putu Oka Mahendra is a celebration of Bali's lush rainforests, teeming with wildlife. The sleek glossy ceramic is perfectly complemented by a cool rattan handle in a contemporary piece of timeless charm.
Putu Oka Mahendra has received 3 microcredit loans with 0% interest from Kiva and Novica, the first for $1300 and the most recent for $1100. Proceeds were used to invest in hiring more artisans from his community to increase production.
