Those two teapots decorated with blue clouds are made by a young potter Zhang who is based on Jingdezhen, China. The potter is so creative to apply traditional art of blue and white ware into a teapot partially rather than making common white pottery decorated with blue pigment. Zhang refuses to follow the tradition slavishly ,but have tried to reformed the teaware in breathtakingly creative ways. He connects traditional eastern elements, like mountain, lucky cloud, bird, stream with original craftsmanship which is characterised by handmade relief on the surface of the potteries.
The two teapots present rust-like in appearance through interplay between matte and shiny black glaze. They are decorated under glaze with a blue pigment in form of clouds. The blue and white part is textured smoothly while black part are not, which provides visual and textural contrast aesthetically. The lid is topped with a delicate bird fully made by hand and practical in holding.
Both teapots holds roughly 150ml of liquid with a multi-hole ball filter. The spout is short and pretty thin which ensures smooth pour and sharp stop of pour without drips.
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.
