As with the other pieces from this series, this unglazed, wood-fired ceramic features an understated, yet refined appearance. This item employs a dark clay that results in more iron spots and a different array of colors from its white clay counterparts. As the artists put it themselves, the teapot should be a vessel for tea, not something loud or distracting on the tea table.
Although this ceramic is unglazed, it was wood-fired at a very high temperature for several days straight, resulting in partially a vitrified surface. This wood-fired piece is the result of years of wood firing experience and purposeful design.
Each aspect of the design and creation of these pieces has been considered in order to achieve an elegant result, from mixing their own proprietary clay to designing and building their own kiln. The artist likens the creation of their ceramics to a painted trying to paint an image in their head, combining creativity and inspiration with honed skills. With enough time and effort, that image can be realized.
Usage and care: Hand-wash only, without soap or detergent.
