Nirvana Wood Fired Kyusu Teapot (Qi)
- Additional information
This teapot was made in Jingdezhen and employs a “plant ash” (草木灰) glaze, which is then wood fired. These factors give each teapot a unique and dramatic pattern on the exterior, which the interior remains unglazed. As such, we recommend dedicating this teapot for use with a chosen type of tea.
The results of wood firing teaware is dependent on many factors, including clay composition, firing duration, location and placement in the kiln, shape of the kiln, type/composition of wood being burned, and much more. Each teapot is fired for several days, requiring a significant amount of wood to be used as fuel, which in turns increases the cost of production.
This particular teapot holds approximately 230ml of liquid and has a flat 7 hole filter. The clay used is a high-grade white clay (高白泥) from Jingdezhen area. Compared to our similar pots from this series made from mid-grade white clay, this clay is finer and more pure, which in turn produces a slightly more subtle effect from the wood firing process.
