From a whimsical child’s teapot, an elegant English Teapot, to collectible kettles that adorn some homes, they are a subtle reminder of all that is good in this world. The very act of preparing and serving tea encourages conversation. The little spaces in time created by teatime rituals call out to be filled with conversation. Even the tea itself–warm and comforting-inspires a feeling of relaxation and trust that fosters shared confidences. The tomato offers its gift of fiery color and cool completeness.
