Wang Wen De is a master of visual tension. Throughout his work, soft lines play against geometry, and ethereality pairs with gravity.
In this medium-sized brewing pot, subtle fingerprints work their way up the body of the vessel in feathery strokes, obscured by a soft shino glaze. In contrast, the brass handle is a bold stroke, formed with a certainty that throws the delicacy of the clay into stark relief. This balance of shape and material keeps the eye in motion, a constant exploration of a beautiful form. At 190ml capacity, it is perfectly sized to brew tea for two. A built in strainer on the inside of the spout allows for quick, clean pouring. 5 available.
*Please take note that each pot may 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 unique, and may not be identical to the photographed item.
