Hand-formed・Zi ni (purple clay)・200ml
This tea pot was completely slab-built by hand using a Huang Long Shan “zi ni” or purple clay. Its Chinese name translates to mean “drum”, a reference to the rounded sides and flat top and bottom of this pot.
Artist chop is stamped on the bottom, underside of the lid, and the handle. Single large outlet best suited to large leaf teas. Limited series of five 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.
