Stoneware・Matte white glaze
This petite stoneware teapot was hand built by ceramicist Wang Wen De, using a special formulation of clay that creates breathtakingly thin, light pieces. The spout curves gently away from the body, balanced against an elegant handle. The interior and exterior surfaces of this pot are covered in a matte white glaze.
Unlike Wang Wen De’s earlier work, this series was fully hand built rather than turned on a potters wheel. Each pot exhibits the thumb and finger prints of its maker running in vertical lines up the body of the pot. This scalloped texture adds rhythm and keeps the eye in motion, a constant exploration of a beautiful form. 3 available.
*Please take note that each pot can be slightly different in color tone, texture, size, and shape. It is not unusual to have areas of thicker glazing, and or colorations that reflect the different interactions between the mineral content of the clay body and glaze. Each tea pot is different, and may not be identical to the photographed item.
