Lusting after this gorgeous teapot and cups by Brazil’s Estudio Manus, available via Do Not Touch.

Awesome porcelain teapots? You can find them at Teresa Chang’s site. They’re elegant, simple, and if they weren’t $400 and up, I would buy the lot. Chang studied under Ah Leon, who isn’t a shabby teapottist himself (evidenced by the provocative urn-like pot pictured here).

I’d like to start doing some ceramics, but if my little pinch-pots from seventh grade are any indication of my skill, I’ll never rival these beauties … that said, I have thought about signing up for a course at Brickhouse Ceramic Art Center in Long Island City. Hrm.
