GODDESS CEREMONIAL TEA VESSELS
Goddess Vessel number 1 - "The Alchemist" Dimensions:9x9" Holds 2 or 3 Small Cups of Tea Price: $89.00
Enchantment found it’s way to the table where the Goddess Ceremonial Tea Vessel was placed. Three friends gathered to help initiate a healing. The pungent herbal aroma from the mysterious vessel containing the special roots and herbs chosen fresh from the garden permeated the air. The elixir was steeped to perfection and the cups were filed. Each Goddess inhaled the scent of the tisanes which opened their sensory perception as they gazed at the fascinating original clay Goddess face that was sculpted into the vessel. All were oblivious to their surroundings and time was lost to antiquity as they partook of this special potion, all the while awaiting for the magic to unfold.
Goddess Vessel number 2 - "She Who Knows Her Own Sacred Sound." Dimensions: 7 x 41/2" Holds 1 large cup of tea Price: $58.00
My tea vessels are each an original. I hand sculpt them using stoneware clay. The Goddess faces are sculpted in the bas-relief method. I used a lead free glaze on each vessel.
I can envision a Goddess tea party using sacred teas for ceremony.
Goddess Vessel number 3 - "Healing Woman" Dimensions: 9 x 7" Holds 2 large mugs or 3 cups of tea Price: $89.00
SOLD. THANK YOU ALICIA!
To brew tea:
The best way to brew tea for vessel is to place cold water in another microwavable container. Heat water and then pour into vessel in which either tea bags or a tea strainer or tea ball has been placed. Place lid back on and allow to steep for 5 minutes or so. Serve. The lids are an integral part of the vessel. Be sure to hold the lid as you pour the tea.
Goddess Vessel number 4 - "She Who Follows The Path of the Ancient Mystery Schools. Dimensions: 7x3 1/2" Holds one large cup of tea Price: $58.00
Care of Tea Vessel:
Because of the various embellishments placed into the vessel, it is best not to place in dishwasher or microwave but instead use the tea vessel to steep and serve. I have used lead free glaze on the interior of each pot so that it is safe to drink the tea and after finishing, running hot water inside the pot releasing any tea having lodged there is all that is needed to keep sanitary.

If you would like to purchase one of my tea vessels, please e-mail me and we can go from there. I like to use Paypal but checks are ok too.
Thank you so much. The vessels were a long time in the making with much experimentation. Who knows where they will go from here. I’m very satisfied with them and will continue to embellish future tea vessels in the same manner for awhile.
