The two teapots are made by a young potter, FAFA from Jingdezhen, an influential pottery centre in the world. Being formed by clay-pinching instead of throwing, his crafts are distinguished by the obvious handmade marks, giving an organic and imperfect appearance.
The two teapots are irregularly shaped through pinching by hands which takes much more time than usually throwing from wet clay until dried. They both feature extremely thin texture and light weight, as if made by metal at first sight. As not being formed by thrown, both teapots are asymmetry, rustic but apparently conveying a spirit of craftsmanship. FAFA gets rid of regular curve design of the lid and creates an uncommon style like a pasta plate fitting the pot instead, being aesthetically beautiful in form and practical in covering or uncovering.
Teapot A is coloured by silver-like glaze, shiny but soft. With distorting-mirror-like surface, the teapot reflects different colours depending on the environment.
Teapot B is covered by matte grey glaze , unassuming but elegant. It is still easy to feel the rough clay under the glaze when studying it in the hand.
Both teapots can hold roughly 150-165ml liquid. Metal Multi-holes filter strains the tea in the spout which ensures a smooth pour without any drips. As the body and lid of the pot are made in the means of pinching, the lid is not as fitting as zisha teapot, but it won't affect on use for normal tea brew.
Please pay attention 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.
