Teapot's Secret
Teapot's Secret

Teapot’s Secret is a teapot without lid, and this pot itself cannot be filled. The water entrance is settled on the bottom of pot with a peculiar construction, so the water won’t come out.
On usual condition, if the entrance set on the bottom of the pot, the water will leak out. But “Teapot’s Secret” creates a miracle by its original structural design. The entrance of the teapot is on the bottom of the pot where people can’t see, moreover, the water won’t come out by means of the pot’s inside structural design.
