The Kyusu is made by the 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.
Made of dark clay, the kyusu is woodfired in the kiln for a few days straight , resulting in a complex surface of brown and black with metal sheen thoroughly . It stands out with the kintsugi of patch design covering more than half of the body providing strong wabi-sabi esthetics and significant textural contrast. The overall piece leaves nothing to wish for.
The kyusu holds approximately 150ml of liquid with 21 holes ball filter. Expertly connected into the body of pot, the spout is able to embrace smooth pour and sharp stop of pour without drips.Please pay attention that as the kyusu 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 kyusu. For these reasons, it shall not be washed using detergents, but rather water only.
