Cast Iron Tea Pot
Designed by Giel Dedeurwaerder and Brent Neve
Awarded the Henry Van De Velde Award 2019
Giel Dedeurwaerder: “The Collage tea service is based on the perfect balance between material, shape and proportion, and on the idea that tableware can also serve perfectly well as decoration, instead of being stored away after use.” Inspired by Japanese designs, Giel Dedeurwaerder and Brent Neve from the designer collective Utilise.objects created cups made of solid acacia wood and a cast-iron teapot. The combination of the warm wood tone and the indestructible cast iron gave the service exactly those durable, functional, and aesthetic characteristics that the duo was looking for. And those same features have been awarded the Henry Van de Velde Awards 2019 in the Habitat category.

CAST IRON CARE:
Season your new cast iron prior to using, which helps create a natural non-stick surface (see below)
Hand wash cast iron with hot water, no soap, and use a stiff non-metal brush or sponge to remove any residue, it should never be put in a dishwasher
Dry promptly and completely as cast iron can rust, drying cast iron on the stovetop is our favorite
How to season your new cast iron: start by scrubbing well with warm soapy water (soap should only be used the first time). Dry the cast iron thoroughly. Spread a thin layer of vegetable shortening, lard, or bacon grease (vegetable oil is not recommended). Heat oven to 375 degrees and place upside down on a middle rack in the oven. Bake for 1 hour and let cool completely in the oven. Season regularly.
