I have always been curious about the ingredients of creativity and the origin of new ideas. I’m also eager to better understand how everyday products impact the mindsets we inhabit.

Creativity is becoming increasingly important.

We are experiencing a fundamental transformation in the way we live and work. The human skills required to thrive are changing and there is a growing need for higher cognitive abilities, such as creativity.

Yet, modern life can inhibit our creativity.

The daily stream of information can distance us from our naturally curious and creative mindsets. Without reminders, it’s easy to slip into worry or to sleepwalk. We can forget our desire to open up and explore something new.

Can a simple, everyday product expand your creativity?

I have been researching if and how our everyday products could inspire creativity, free our imaginations and perhaps even raise our collective consciousness.

Over the past few months, I have been developing a new product concept. As you may have guessed, this product is a teapot. The teapot is a humble, universally known object. It has played a role in daily life for centuries and the ritual of drinking tea feels like the perfect vehicle for creative insights to arise.

Become a co-creator of this curiosity quenching quest.

I am recruiting new ‘guinea pigs’; a small number of people who will be the first testers and co-creators of this mind-expanding teapot.

So, can a teapot free your imagination?
