Ora Teapot by Paul Loebach

If you’ve had a few burns from your beloved teapot in the past, then this innovative design by Paul Loebach is up your alley. The Ora Teapot is made of tempered borosilicate glass which keeps the delicious contents perfectly drinkable, while keeping the outside cool to touch. The design is based on laboratory beakers, and made from the same glass. The teapot fits perfectly in your hand, and eliminates the need for (in some people’s opinion) that pesky handle. Due to this contemporary shape, this teapot is much easier to store than its circular counterpart.
