Steeped in Stars

You don't have to use this tea steeper at night, staring up at a million twinkling stars (though that sounds pretty wonderful to us). Makers Jonathan and Julia Simons just want to bring a bit of celestial spirit to your steeping routine. They handcraft the charming design from cherry wood in their Pennsylvania studio. Each is carved with sweet mini-moons and stars, giving it a delightful touch reminiscent of gazing up at the galaxies. Give the enchanted piece to a tea enthusiast friend or send it to a loved one with an affinity for the cosmos. Handmade in Kempton, Pennsylvania.

Jonathan is an artist and furniture maker who started his craft over 35 years ago. Julia is an artist with a background in graphic design. When the two met, they decided to put their design ideas together, and sixteen years ago, they made their first carved utensil. All their tabletop designs are made from solid Pennsylvania cherry wood, using no dyes, resins, or polymers. They successfully experimented with laser cutting, which allowed them to develop more inspired and inventive designs, working in their Pennsylvania shop. Jonathan and Julia intend for their utensils to be used every day, and think of their item's usefulness as part of their art.
