Leather Teapot

Leather Teapot was inspired by UGG shoes. After analyzing Ugg shoes and the making process of these shoes, I found out that UGG shoes are made by stitching one piece of leather. This interesting way of making a organic 3D shape by folding a single sheet of leather was something I wanted to base my design for a teapot on. I decided to keep the original material of the UGG shoes; leather. After expirimenting with leather, I concluded that the best way to make the teapot water and tea proof was to cover it with a thin layer of silicons. After letting the silicon layer dry, the teapot is hand stitched together from a single sheet of leather.
