Hand-thrown teapot "da-guan" in the Korean buncheong spirit, made of wild clays from the Sierra Nevada mountains of California. Dipped in white slip and finished with a feldspar and ash glaze. The glaze will develop a subtle patina with use.
Pure brass handle is hammered by hand and made to fit each piece. The material can be etched on request (leave a note at checkout). The raw brass will develop a darker patina over time, while the black etching process allows for the opposite, i.e. it begins black and will reveal use patterns like a darkened antique brass door handle polished only where touched over time. The handle swings gently side to side for access to the lid, and can be removed or re-tensioned over time.
Teapot body 11cm W; 9cm H (appx 4.25in W x 3.5in H) With handle, 15cm H
