This textured, round-bodied wood-fired stoneware teapot is one in a million. It was wood-fired multiple times.

It spots what seems like a brush stroke extending from the tip of the lid across its entire body, stopping just short of the base, almost as if painted on by a master artist. This stroke with its ivory, blues and greens is actually the result of what the makers call a drip of sweat from the wood-fire kiln. This occurs when layers of ash glaze accumulated on the inside of the kiln from previous firings melt during the firing, dripping onto the vessels currently being fired.

Handmade by Huang Yu Wen, the pot has a hand-built honeycomb filter that keeps tea leaves from escaping. The lid is tight and pours beautifully.

As this pot is and unglazed wood-fired piece, as mentioned earlier, 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.

Approximate dimensions: 85mm (Height), 85mm (Diameter), 235ml (volume)
