To create his designs, Putu Oka Mahendra finds inspiration in the luscious flora and fauna of Bali. He uses clay, diligently hand-forming this teapot to feature a simple shape with a cute little tortoise resting atop the lid. Finished with a green matte glaze, this simple kitchen accessory is outfitted with a handle made of rattan.
Please note: The rattan handle should be removed before placing the teapot in the dishwasher.
