Proving that a good design will work on a variety of forms, this butterfly teapot is decorated with a pattern based on a 1950s textile design.
Made by hand by Gone To Pot, a Texas-based maker, the pattern is reproduced using an underglaze pencil and stain drawing, the diamond and butterfly shapes of the design adapting well to the curve of the pot.

This pot costs $60.
