Tempest Teapot by Dan Saultman
The Teapot is the quintisential challenge of
the potter. It offers an open format that challenges an artists sense of balance, sculpture and components.

The Tempest teapot took two years to complete. Grooves in the teapot were carefully ground with a diamond tool to accept the polished stainless steel detailing. Once fitted, the belly ring was welded in place. There are 12 pieces used in the assembly of this teapot.

After opening a bag of clay, something begins to happen. Art starts to happen here at our studio. This teapot has taken untolled hours of workmanship to ulitmately offer it to you. The struggle to get it to market is a tribute to beliefs that this kind of artistry is important. This piece was airbrushed with glazes on two separate occaisons. It was fired in a gas kiln at 2300 degrees. But all of the tools are worthless if the items produced aren't noteworthy. This teapot is worthy. We hope you are intrigued. It is a one of a kind piece that is signed and dated. Dan Saultman.

Stoneware is the strongest clay. The white stoneware we use is fired at 2300F in a gas kiln - no automation, just careful monitoring of a kiln for 14 hours. This method yields beautiful glazes with opalescent levels of color and depth, that are tough enough to stand up to daily food and kitchen demands.

Dan Saultman produces one-of-a-kind ceramic art pieces for those who appreciate the hand made beauty of Ceramics as an art form. Coaxing art from clay takes time and years of practice, science and careful glaze testing. All of our glazes are mixed by hand from scratch.
