Story Behind the Art:
Putu Oka Mahendra was born in the Tabanan regency of Bali. His mother, Tantri, pioneered ceramic artistry in 1980. She was a woman full of energy and highly self-confident. When she first started she undertook the entire crafting procedure by herself - from creating the design until finishing the product. She gradually developed a reputation for fine design and high quality and people started placing so many orders that she saw the need to hire assistants. In 1990, when Tantri passed away, Oka Mahendra took-over her work, and eventually opened a showroom in her memory.

I bought this for a friend. He collects tea pots. I loved it so much, I want to buy onefor myself.Read More
was a great gift my friend loved it and said the color will match a set of tea cups she has!Read More
i haven't used my teapot for water yet, it is really just on display in a corner shelving area of my new cabinetry - just love the little guy.Read More
It arrived very quickly and was in perfect shape, no cracks, chips, etc. The colors are very good and look like the picture. I love it!Read More
This is a cute little tea pot, very small though. I am not quite comfortable with putting boiling hot water in it as it is so cute and I would hate to have it crack.Read More
This tea pot was given as a gift. She loved it, it is adorable, but when she used it for the first time found out it was not practical. The tea poured all over the place and the ceramic pot should not or cannot (depending on who you ask) be placed on direct heat. Also the pot was very small. This seems more like decoration than anything. Returned and O.Co was fantastic as always.Read More
I collect teapots and am always on the lookout for something different. This pottery turtle is as cute as it is in the picture. It is not large, but enough to brew a mug and a half of tea. It looks handmade and has a good heft. The handle is sturdy. The only thing is that, because it is from Asia, I am unsure whether it has passed saftey standards with regard to lead in the clay or stain, which is always a concern about any imported pottery item that may be used for food. Perhaps "O" can clarify this for all of us, because this turtle is darn cute! My grandkids will love to have their tea in it...once I find out about its safety.Read More
I bought this turtle teapot as a git & it was pretty cute! My friend, who loves turtles & tea, loved it! It took a little bit longer than normal to have it shipped, so you will have to wait 2 weeks before receiving it. The description does say that you can use it to make tea in, but it looks to be more decorative.Read More
When I received the tea pot I was very excited to see it looked just like the picture, the only downside was it was a bit smaller than I had thought it would be. It is such a unique design and very well made, but if you're looking for a tea pot that serves multiple people at once this may not be the most ideal.Read More
Bought this for a lover of all things turtle-y and she flipped. It's so adorable, cute, beautiful, unique (pick one or all) out of the box. Love it, want one for myself now.Read More
