Kurinuki Teapot Set for One in Moss Green
Kurinuki Teapot Set for One - Moss Green
Brewing tea in a teapot shouldn’t just be reserved for when you have guests round. The Hairy Potter aka my fiance, Paul, doesn't drink tea - the horror! - so I frequently brew tea just for me. I made this teapot for all you folks that love to take time out just for you and have a little personal tea ceremony for one.
Hand-carved teapot from terracotta sands stoneware and glazed in a mottled green invoking moss covered rocks. The teapot is finished with an oiled and waxed foraged wooden branch handle that has been subtly flame charred to darken the natural pattern of the wood. The wooden handle is then secured by woven jute twine to lengths of brass that will develop a lovely patina with age. A yunomi teacup and a small jug for milk or cream are included in this tea set.
My teapots are carved from a single block of clay, so, unlike slip-cast or wheel-thrown teapots, they're partial to some dripping when you pour your tea out. I think this adds to the fun of the tea ceremony and gives your teapot a bit of personality! I have included a video of how the teapot pours.
Kurinuki is the traditional Japanese method of slowly hollowing out clay to reveal its form. Hand-carving pottery in this way produces truly unique one-of-a-kind pots.
Handwashing is recommended to ensure the longevity of your pottery.
