This stoneware teapot by Taiwanese ceramicist Zhang Yun Cheng is one of eleven we commissioned in 2018. Each piece is fired in a wood-kiln for 5 days.

Each teapot entered the wood-kiln unglazed, and emerged from the long firing with a beautiful luster and sheen. Iron oxide spots fleck the surface, and running drips of fly ash combine with highlights of sky blue add drama.

The teapot is then finished with a cypress pine handle, carved by the ceramicist to perfectly match the shape of each teapot. Each pot is perfectly balanced and proportioned.

Usage and care: Unglazed wood-fired pieces will season very slowly over time, though limited porosity allows for use of different tea types. Exterior of the teapot will deepen in color and develop a rich luster with use. Hand-wash only without soap or detergent.

Approximate dimensions: 95mm tall, 80mm diameter, 260ml・Artist: 張允澄
