The shark tea pet pin is part of the teaware collection that features items commonly found during gonfu style brewing.
This pin depicts a shark breaching and is meant to represent a tea pet! A tea pet is a little statue that is placed on the tea tray during brewing for fun. Sometimes you might feed your tea pet some tea. I often see tea pets that are partially made of clay and partially ceramic which is how I designed this shark. You can read more about tea pets here on The Cup Of Life by my friend Lu Ann who has a lovely blog and honestly is the one that got me into tea pets!
I love animals very much and if I could have the perfect tea pets they would be a penguin and a shark! I decided on the shark because often I see tea pets where there is a space where you can pour the tea into the tea pet and I thought that a shark breaching with it's mouth open would be perfect!
