Teapot for a lot of people
Here is the big, 80 cl zisha teapot I found for Michel's tea party. The teapot looks a little like a tree. With big teapots, you often see more special designs, because simple designs loose their elegance, cuteness when they are 'super sized'.
So, I chose this (affordable) copy made by a simple potter with good zisha clay, not an original from a real artist. The main difference is in the finish, the little details of the decoration. This one is not bad at all, but still not as precise as a master's piece. In terms of actual tea making, however, these details add very little to the tea quality.
I wish you all the best for your tea party!
