The teapot is made by Potter Liu Xinlong from Jingdezhen , the capital of pottery in China. Liu’s works are admired for its spectacular and surprising color as a result of a decade spent in wood firing. He is aimed to discover a wide array of kiln changes which will make pieces come out with pleasing vibrancy or subtlety in unexpected patterns.
Formed with a cute shape, the teapot surprisingly stood out for a unique and elegant appearance from hundreds of teapots fired in the same kiln.It is made by terracotta ceramic blended by the potter himself. But it comes out with completely contrasting blueish-green as a result of being covered by the ash of pine trees fully during 3 days and nights firing in the kiln . To some extent, as most of the pieces are colored by the ash only partially in the same kiln , the fully-done pieces become extremely precious like this pot. With the ash deposited fully, the teapot turns vitrified blueish-greenwith cracks around the whole body ,providing a stylish and refreshing appearance. The drips run from the top until join into a dense green pool, giving the teapot an esthetic enhancement.
The teapot is able to hold roughly 150ml liquid making it a good option for any scale of the tea session.Multi-holes ball filter strains the tea in the spout which ensures a smooth pour without any drips. As the teapot is being fired over 1300℃ for 3 days and nights in the kiln, the lid is not as fitting as zisha teapot , but it won't affect on use during the process of tea brewing.
Please note that as the teapot is not glazed on the inside , we suggest the user of the teapot devote it to a kind of tea for better “nourishing”. Therefore the taste of tea will be improved gradually after long-term brewing the same tea in the teapot. For these reasons, it shall not be washed using detergents, but rather water only.
