Thanks for the additional information it was very helpful. There is a product called JB Weld that will repair your teapot. It should be applied on the inside surface to keep from the repair being visible. Once applied, and before it hardens it can be smoothed with a wet finger. This is a 2 part epoxy that I have used for such repairs before. I repaired a old teakettle my mother used until a hole developed in the bottom. I applied JB Weld to it over 7 years ago and the kettle still sits on her stove with water in it ever since the repair was made. The only disadvantage in using it is if you were to leave the pot on the burner on high with no liquid in the pot, the JB Weld may have to be replaced. Even though it is not recommended for temperatures over 500 degrees I have used it on exhaust manifolds on engines and they get much hotter than 500 degrees. After the epoxy hardens it is food safe. Follow the directions on the package. JB Weld can be purchased in the automotive section of Walmart and in many hardware and automotive stores.
