33 Quirky Teapot Designs

From Fairy Tale Teapots to Time-Traveling Brewers

— February 25, 2013 — Art & Design
Afternoon tea is a great time to sit back and relax with some deliciously brewed beverages, and if you're looking to get a little eclectic with your tea sets, these quirky teapot designs will certainly add some fun to your tea drinking experience.

While most teapots are round and plain white in design, these new and inventive creations showcase the artistic and amazingly abstract ways teapots are now being designed. While having tea is traditionally associated with the kind of activity that older people tend to engage in, these uniquely designed teapots definitely serve to attract the newer generation of individuals who are interested in items that reference pop culture or eclectic ideas.

From teapots that feature images of pop icons to those that are shaped like fairy tale characters, these quirky teapot designs are a great way to turn an average experience into something you can laugh about.
