Kurinuki Teapot in Mountain Snow
Kurinuki Teapot Set - Mountain Snow
Slow down and brighten up your homelife by incorporating traditional rituals into your day. Allow yourself to daydream while brewing your favourite tea with this hand-carved teapot.
Made from terracotta sands stoneware clay and glazed in layers of matte white, while still allowing the beauty of the rocky carving textures to show through, evocative of snowy mountain peaks. The teapot is finished with an oiled and waxed foraged wooden branch handle secured by woven jute twine to lengths of brass that will develop a lovely patina with age.
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've included a video of how the teapot pours (kurinuki yunomi teacups listed separately).
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.
