Huaning Wood Fired Teapot #6 200ml :: FREE SHIPPING
Huaning ( 华宁 ) is a town in Yunnan province with a long history of ceramics. The locals harvest clay from the nearby hills. They source available minerals and hand blend their own glazes. Intense blues and greens are a common theme. These provide a beautiful contrast to both their white clay and the deep red of their iron rich clay.
Wood firing creates unique patterns. There is no glaze used on this teapot. The smoke and inconsistent heat create unique colors and patterns. Additionally the smoke carries pitch from the wood that can settle on the teaware and create a unique pitch glaze. There is often a unique sparkling effect noticed when water is applied. Wood fired teaware often has a higher price because most pieces placed in the kiln will be broken. The ones that survive are extra special.
We appreciate the connection this teaware has with Yunnan and puerh tea. Puerh is a product of the soil and hands of Yunnan, and so is this teaware.
This teapot holds 200ml and measure 13.8cm ( 5.4" ) from spout to handle x 8.5cm tall ( 3.4” ).
This is a unique offering. We only have one. You will receive the teapot pictured. This will come with a hard box and embroidered soft bag.
