The teapot is made by the potter Liu Xinlong (check herefor more details of Liu) from Jingdezhen, the capital of pottery in China.
Made of rough clay, the teapot feels bumpy in the hands. The texture is stunning with the stripes etched into the surface running diagonally from the left to the right, being aesthetically beautiful in form and a pleasure to hold and use. The appearance of the clay moves between a shade of brown with metallic sheen partially thanks to several days straight of wood firing.
The teapot holds approximately 200ml of liquid with 21 holes ball filter. Expertly connected into the body of the pot, the spout is able to embrace 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.
