Handmade and fired by third generation ceramist Yu Shuo-yen from Yingge, Taiwan, this teapot is made of stoneware that was never glazed. Instead, this teapot was wood-fired for five days.

During this process, ash, heat and the breath of the kiln gifted us this dramatic pot that seems to reflect its own life course. The deep yet vibrant hues of orange and red calls to mind lava, or perhaps the flames which lapped this very vessel as it was fired to temperatures above 1230°C. The shine achieved on the belly of the teapot is a testament of years of experience this maker has had with wood-firing.

As this pot is and unglazed wood-fired piece, it will season very slowly over time. As such, depending on your preference, you can choose to limit its use to one type of tea. To take care of this pot, rinse with hot water and hand-wash only without soap or detergent.
