Mogake seaweed patterning wraps this unglazed Japanese teapot, resulting in a beautifully unique teapot.
Unique patterns of the sea meet the fired earth.
Before the final firing of this teapot it it wrapped in fine seaweed. In the final kiln firing the seaweed imparts beautiful coloration patterns as a result of the salt application and oxygen reduction. The texture is unique and provides a rich contrast to the dark clay surface. The pour is exceptionally smooth and easily handled with one hand. The interior of the pot is unglazed and provides a richness that will continue to season over time.
This teapot is ideal for daily tea use for one person. The pot contains a ceramic filter which works very well for brewing all sorts of teas from Japanese Greens to Taiwanese oolongs and more. The wide lid opening makes for very easy removal of used tea leaves and cleaning.
This teapot was handmade in Aichi, Japan by the potter Gyokuyu and has a volume of 130ml (4.4oz).
