Of Fish and Tea. Nothing will complement Bee Raw's new estate grown teas than this this tea pot designed by legendary architect Frank Gerhy, the Pito Kettle is stainless steel and mirror polished. Its handle and cap with melodic whistle is crafted in solid mahogany. Said Gehry of his drawings for this lyrical work of design: “I started to draw fish. Without any specific goal, I discovered that I loved them and that they gave the sense of movement that you get in classical sculptures or in some Indian figures.” On sale now and worth it.

On Sale Now and worth it.
