Simple teapot / Teapot

Simple teapot
Simple teapot

The Chinese has been drinking tea for thousands of years.
But due to the shape of the teapot, pouring the tea require using both hands,
one handling the tea pot while the other pressing on the lid so it wouldn't fall.
This move often make a mess and lost the joy of tea tasting.
Using only one hand to complete the tea pouring action,making people carefree and content.
Embed the handle into the teapot, which gives the teapot a hollow space so the four fingers
can fit in the space. That enables the thumb to press down the lid nice and smooth. Easily
accomplish the action of pouring the tea.
