Brew Tea for One: Ceramic Half Teapot

Tea For One - Ceramic Half Teapot

 

 

Stale bread. Cold tea. You can still eat ‘em and drink ‘em, but you’ll do so minus the pleasure you’d normally have if the bread was warm and the tea was hot. There’s not much you can do about the bread, but there is something you can do about the tea: brew a batch that’s meant for one. And the teapot that was made just for this purpose is this Tea for One ceramic teapot by Droog.

Part of a collection, the Dutch teapot echoes classic Chinese design and was made in Shenzhen, China, where many items are copied for the mass market. Highlighting what gets changed in a “copy,” the collection strives to bring attention to the creative decisions that go into making all copycats and to show that unoriginality can be inspiring, too.

It basically looks like a teapot that was cut in half, which is probably something you wanted to do with your regular pot when you wanted to make some tea for your lonesome. The Tea for One teapot retails for $75.

On a High: First Marijuana Vending Machine is Rolled Out

Marijuana Vending Machine

 

Is there anything you can not get from a vending machine these days? The first marijuana vending machine–at least, in Colorado–was recently rolled out on the patio of Montana’s Smokehouse in Avon. It’s different from other pot-dispensing vending machines in the sense that it’s accessible by anyone. For example, marijuana vending machines already exist in California, but they’re often located behind counters so you wouldn’t be able to dispense it yourself.

However, even though access to the machine isn’t limited, access to marijuana is. Only those who are medical marijuana cardholders will be able to dispense the goods, since the machine is equipped with a scanner that verifies the person’s ID first before dispensing anything.

Stephen Shearin, who is the COO of Tranzbyte, explains that he believes the machine will be a lot of help for folks who might feel shy having to buy marijuana, even though they’re doing so legally.

Brazilian Artist Uses Pot to Create Smokin’ Art

Pot Artist

It’s strange, but true. This has got to be the first time that I’ve heard ‘art’ as the reason for why someone would smoke pot, but as they say, there’s always a first for everything.

Brazilian artist Fernando de la Rocque creates surreal-looking pieces of art by taking deep drags out of a joint and then blowing the smoke onto his stencil-covered canvas. It takes a while, but after a couple of puffs, a light brown outline starts to appear. Rocque keeps at it until the image is complete and adequately ‘colored.’ I’m not sure how he’s managing to pull this off, since smoking marijuana is illegal in Brazil.

Regardless, a lot of people happen to like Rocque’s doped-out art as each of the pot-smoke prints sell at about $2,500 each. A couple of Rocque’s work is currently on display at an alternative gallery down in Rio’s Ipanema neighborhood, so drop by and take a whiff take a look at his work if you happen to be in the area.

Hit the jump to check out a couple more of Rocque’s art.
