White Frosted Wood Fired Jianshui Zitao Teapot with Carved Lotus - Long Dan / Dragon's Egg Style 150ml :: FREE SHIPPING
This is an exceptional wood fired teapot! We have seen very few with this level of quality. The white frosted texture from the natural smoke, ash, and pitch glaze is amazing to feel and hold. The lotus has been carved by hand
Wood fired Jianshui teapots are really gorgeous. They use a natural wood burning kiln to make these. It can take anywhere from a few days to a month of kiln time to finish. Most pieces do not last through the wood firing process. They break and are discarded. This teapot was fired for 5 days.
Wood firing Jianshui clay creates unique patterns. The smoke and inconsistent heat create unique colors and patterns. Additionally the smoke carries pitch from the wood that can settle on the teapot and create a sparkling effect only noticeable when wet. It's quite difficult to take a proper picture of this. This teapot is one of a kind.
Jianshui clay teapots are single fired and unglazed. This is a true clay which lacks any sand. The natural minerals in the clay will enhance the flavor of your tea. Jianshui is in Yunnan, and the clay used in these teapots comes from the same mountains that grow puerh tea trees. We appreciate that connection. We blogged about this unique town here.
This is an unglazed 100% wood fired teapot. A common trend is to fake wood firing with creatively applied ceramic glaze. This is the real deal.
This teapot is 150ml in volume. ( Volume measurements are rounded to the nearest tenth.
