Cobalt, Var. 1

Regular price $380.00


Charmingly proportioned with lively silhouettes, this fresh batch of teapots from Taiwanese potter Zhang Yun Cheng offers a cheerful start to your morning tea preparation. Thrown on the potter’s wheel from sand-colored stoneware clay, each pot is glazed in a pillowy shino glaze, cobalt oxide highlighting the spout, lid, and onion-domed finial. Crazing in this glaze creates pattern and depth to the surface, elements that will slowly evolve with use. A thin layer of tenmoku brown lines the interior, and an expertly constructed ball filter provides easy, dripless pouring.

These teapots, from Taiwanese potter Zhang Yun Cheng, are lovely paired with the artist’s matching cups, available in a tall and short profile.

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.

Approximate dimensions: 80mm tall, 80mm diameter, 168ml・Artist: 張允澄
