Seemingly in motion, this pot’s round body, finial, and handle are mirrored in the application of cobalt oxide and shino glaze that circumvent the form. A slight crackle, or crazing of the glaze, provides depth and nuance to the surface, a quality that will evolve over time with repeated use. Inside the pot, a thin application of tenmoku brown seals the sand-hued stoneware, and an expertly crafted ball filter offers an easy, dripless pouring experience.
Pictured is one in a series of similar pieces. Slight variations are possible from piece to piece, a hallmark of hand-made pottery.
Usage and care: The interior of each pot is glazed, and may be used with all tea types. To wash, simply rinse between uses or hand scrub with mild detergent.
