wood fired teapot 100ml

The clay in this teapot 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. Because there's a small chip in the rim of this pot, I'm offering it at a lower price. The inside of the pot is unglazed.
