The twinned handles and spouts allow this funky teapot to be held from any angle with the right or the left hand. Place the teapot between you and your loved one so either of you can pour tea without even having to ask.
Part of a collection, the Dutch teapot echoes classic Chinese design and was made in Shenzhen, China, where many items are copied for the mass market. Highlighting what gets changed in a “copy,” the collection strives to bring attention to the creative decisions that go into making all copycats and to show that unoriginality can be inspiring, too.
The group of designs was exhibited at Today Art Museum, Beijing, and OCT Art and Design Gallery in 2013.
