The Utah teapot is a 3D model created
in 1975 by Martin Newell which has become a standard reference
object in the computer graphics community. It is a simple, round,
partially concave mathematical model of an ordinary teapot. The
objective of Utanalog by Unfold is to return the iconographic
teapot to its roots as a piece of functional dish-ware while
showing its status as an icon of the digital world.
It is produced from high quality white porcelain transparantly
glazed on the inside, biscuit on the outside to preserve the sharp
polygon edges and matte look. The Utanalog is handmade by Stockmans
Porcelain, a Belgian porcelain manufacturer, famous for fine
designs and high quality.
The Utanalog teapot is 100% usable (yes, it has a bottom... as
opposed to the original Utah teapot) and nothing should keep you
from using it every day like we do in our studio. But it needs to
be used and cared for in a gentle manner due to its delicate
design. We recommend that you clean the teapot after each use and
do not recommend cleaning our ceramics in a dishwasher.
