Kurinuki Teapot Set in Snow Storm
Kurinuki Teapot Set - Snow Storm
Slow down and brighten up your homelife by incorporating traditional rituals into your day. Allow yourself to daydream while brewing your favourite tea in this hand-carved teapot set.
Hand-carved from stoneware clay with speckles breaking through the glaze like rocks sprinkled in the snow just after a blizzard. Finished with an oiled and waxed foraged wooden branch handle secured by woven jute twine to loops of brass that will develop a lovely patina with age.
Two kurinuki yunomi teacups are also included in this tea set that are decorated with ‘smooshes’ of clay to give a comfortable ergonomic feel.
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.
