'Silver Birch Teapot’ is crafted from two interlocking forms, a functional inner cylinder with a soft satin finish embraced by an undulating, organic and highly textured outer layer. The unique surface pattern is inspired by the peeling bark of silver birch trees, carefully developed using handmade texturing punches, hammer marks, and piercing with a jeweler's saw. The handle is a unique construction of sustainably harvested birch bark sheets laminated over a silver and cherry wood core.
