Johnson Tsang is a Hong Kong sculptor who has created the Painful Pot, an awesome teapot that looks more like a work of art than something you'd serve English Breakfast out of. Tsang's porcelain teapot was made and decorated by hand and contains an amazing amount of detail.
If you look closely, you'll notice that the dragon's mouth has a hole in it. The head of the dragon actually acts as the spout, which should cause quite a stir come tea time. The Painful Pot appears to be a one-off project by Tsang, which makes sense given the intense amount of time and energy it must have taken to meticulously craft such a teapot. Here's hoping more artists and designers use the Painful Pot as inspiration to create quirky and artistic teapots.
