wood fired pangolin teapot / wood handle 120ml

This wood fired teapot features a wood handle that's protected with an odorless waterproof sealant to increase durability. The clay is a blend of stoneware and porcelain combined to get the best out of both materials. During firing in an anagama wood kiln, the temperature is repeatedly brought over the clays peak maturing temperature of 2400°F short periods. This causes the silica in the clay to transform into glass producing a more vitrified surface. This makes the teapot more versatile as a vessel suitable for any kind of tea. This pot is very comfortable to handle and has a smooth pour. The body of the pot recieved many beautiful markings where the flame and ash have interacted with clay body and the splashes of glaze on the outside surface of the pot. The pattern on the outside of the pot resembles the scaly armor of one of Taiwan's rare indigenous animals, the pangolin. The inside of the pot is unglazed.
