Partial Hand-made・Zi ni (purple clay)
One of four Xi Shi tea pots we commissioned in 2018 as a study of clay types. This series was partially hand-made. The clay was prepared by hand and pressed into a mold. The spout, lid, handle were shaped by hand. The assistance of a mold allows us to offer an exceptionally high quality tea pot using an authentic zisha clay without the cost of full hand craftsmanship.
Perfectly shaped to accommodate a range of different tea types. Nine outlets arranged in a diamond pattern allow for quick drainage. Series of fifty pieces.
Usage and care: Thoroughly rinse particles of sand from the interior before use. Dedicate one tea type per pot. Eventually, a tea pot will be seasoned with the particular character of a tea. Hand-wash only without soap or detergent.
