Sublime Wood Fired Teapot – Eclipse
- Additional information
As with the other pieces from this series, this unglazed, wood fired teapot features an understated, yet refined appearance, with a white base, smoky colour and touches of green. As the artists put it themselves, the teapot should be a vessel for tea, not something loud or distracting on the tea table.
This teapot holds approximately 120ml of liquid and has a very fast pour of ~6 seconds.
Although this teapot is unglazed, it was wood-fired at a very high temperature for several days straight, resulting in a vitrified surface. Therefore this teapot can be used with multiple types of tea, as the inner surface is not necessarily porous. According to the artists, this pot is well suited to Yancha, but we have also enjoyed using one ourselves for raw puer (young and aged) and dancong.
These wood fired pieces are the result of years of wood firing experience and purposeful design. We chanced upon meeting the artist-couple behind them during a recent trip to Jingdezhen and instantly found a connection with their work.
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. They liken 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.
