The jewel-like form and playful lines of this tea strainer lead us to ask whether or not it is meant to be functional. The holes in the drip bowl echo the curved lines of the handle, unifying the parts in an elegant and whimsical form, while imitating the splashing and swirling of tea as it flows from a pot into a cup.
