Hand-formed・Zhu ni (pearl clay)・140ml
This elegant little teapot was completely slab-built by hand using a Huang Long Shan “zhu ni” or pearl clay. Its Chinese name translates to mean “clear spring”, suggestive of the clean and simple lines of this pot.
Artist chop is stamped on the bottom, underside of the lid, and the handle. Seven outlets arranged in a hexagonal pattern allow for quick drainage. Limited series of four 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.
Dimensions: 65mm tall, 70mm diameter・Pot Name: 清泉壺・Artist: 朱關琴
