Maria Laach Low-Drip Teapot
No Never Drip but Low-Drip. Teapot from the Benedictine Monastery of Maria Laach.
This teapot started out as a project on commission. The task for the ceramic workshop was to develop a teapot with a sufficient volume and a spout design that minimised dripping. A successful search was done, and an archetype found among the old Bogler models. With the necessary adjustments in design, the spout got an alternate form. The handle solution, with an attached leather strap which can be replaced when necessary, contributes to stability and minimises drip in the act of pouring. With its deep lip, the lid is protected from falling out. Nota bene: an absolutely drip free teapot will always be an ideal, but this pot shows that minimising the drip is indeed possible.
Ceramics from Maria Laach
The production of ceramic objects has a long tradition in the Benediktinerabtei Maria Laach in the Eifel. In any case, the monastery is located in a region that has been known for this craft for centuries. In Maria Laach in particular, it experienced a new heyday in the early 20th century thanks to the Bauhaus-trained monk Theodor Bogler. After the ceramics workshop had only a shadowy existence, it was reopened a few years ago. Currently it is managed by Br. Stephan. The master ceramist Gabi Schöneberger and the porcelain painter Andrea Lange work with him. Today, work is being done again both classically on the wheel and in the casting process that Bogler established.
