Hey!

The pot is by this finnish designer Antti Nurmesniemi.

This tea pot is also by him and it comes all different colors and I heard that they will start making those again :)

The pot isn't actually by Antti Nurmesniemi - it was designed by Seppo Mallat who used to work in Nurmesniemi's studio. The item was manufactured by Arabia (then Finel), and has not been in production for a long time (the Nurmesniemi tea pot mentioned in the previous comment, however, is currently in reproduction here in Finland). Vintage is therefore the only way to go, but I wouldn't bother with Japanese design stores as their prices for Finnish design are extortionate!
