"Designer Joey Roth calls his baby the Sorapot. It’s a radically minimalist reinterpretation of the teapot — a vision transforming a familiar, everyday item into something more like modern art. And, unlike many conventional teapots, the Sorapot’s glass and metal components are fully recyclable."
TreeHugger contributor Joey Roth is so modest; his reinvention of the teapot has been on so many design websites but never on TreeHugger. We are correcting that because it is a complete reinvention of the way a teapot works; It turns it into a show.
Joey says "I’ve always been entranced by small, beautiful things that are so detailed, they seem like miniature worlds, yet so ordinary they’re often left unnoticed. I designed Sorapot to emphasize one of my favorite- the unfurling of tea leaves. Sorapot suspends the process of tea making in a glass tube a few centimeters above your tabletop. Unlike standard teapots that confine tealeaves in a small mesh basket, your leaves will have full run of Sorapot’s interior as they unfurl and change the hot water into tea. You might even see a tea-colored shadow cast by sunlight that passes through the tube and comes to rest in a gossamer puddle on your table."
