The teapot is made by Hu Ke in Jingdezhen, an important pottery center in China. Hu used to be a media worker in his early career. However, with a passion about the nature and countryside life growing gradually, Hu made up his mind to quit the well-developed media work and put his root in Jingdezhen for studying wood firing where he is able to feel the truth of natureand life. . Hu is aimed to develop a line of mini teapots for a small tea ceremony as a teapot suiting for single-person brewing plays an important role during his daily meditation.
Made of white gaolin clay, the teapot is colored by the ash and fire . It stands out by the green drips with faint cracks running from the top to the bottom, allowing an interplay with speckled effect of brown spots across the vitrified terracotta body.
The teapot is able to hold roughly 75ml 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.
