This gorgeous ceramic teapot features a representation of the famous 4th century Christian fish mosaic excavated from an ancient church in Tabgha on the shores of the Galilee.
The teapot is an extremely light, elegant work of art by a master artist living in Israel. It will make a great gift to put on your mantle, or use it for pouring cold drinks.
The Armenian community in Jerusalem goes back to the 5th century and they occupy one of the 4 quarters of the Old City, a distinct neighborhood within its walls. For thousands of years it has been the world center for these colorfully and richly designed works of art.
Please note: This teapot is not intended for use with hot water.
Each individual item is hand made with ceramic clay. Once complete it is placed in an oven at temp. 1000°C until hardened. Each piece is then hand painted using metallic and oxidized paint in order to keep its natural color.
Again it is returned to the oven at the same temperature and finished with fine glazing.
