Beautiful traditional teapot from Portugal in red clay. This terracotta teapot, which is porous in nature, absorbs and restores the flavor of the tea with each tasting, creating a true "memory teapot". In addition, it retains heat better and is more durable than any other teapot.

Crafted by hand with meticulous attention to detail, this teapot is shaped on a potter's wheel and adorned with exquisite hand-painted motifs, making each piece truly one-of-a-kind. Subtle variations in its appearance bear witness to the artisanal craftsmanship involved in its creation.

Utilizing locally sourced clay from Alentejo and employing natural pigments, this plate embodies an ethical and ecological ethos. Moreover, it is fashioned entirely by hand in a workshop with a storied history spanning over a century, further emphasizing its commitment to sustainability.

By selecting an item from this extraordinary collection, you will be privileged to own an object crafted from red clay, skillfully shaped by the hands of José Alves, one of the few remaining potters who have mastered the art of wheel pottery.

This family-run pottery business, tracing its roots back to José's great-great-grandfather, still thrives within these very premises. "I feared for the continuity of our trade, but one of my daughters came to my aid, infusing a touch of innovation with her artistic paintings on our creations" he recalls with heartfelt emotion.

The red clay, renowned as the "Olaria de barro vermelho," is exceptionally well-suited for producing functional tableware and is even used to prepare magnificent stews. "In a clay pot, the meat becomes exquisitely tender" chuckles José Alves, showcasing his expertise and passion for his craft.
