wood fired teapot / wood handle 85ml

This wood fired teapot features a charred 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.  This is one of the most beautiful pots from the kiln. It has a transparent blue opal like drip of ash down the front and nice flashing from the kiln. Because there's a few small chips on the inner rim of the lid, it drips a little when pouring. Because of this slight defect I'm offering it at a lower price. Other than this, the pot still functions perfectly and pours great. The inside of the pot is unglazed.
