This teapot is un-glazed and was fired at a high temperature. It radiates a strong yet soft presence, and is a lovely marriage of traditional shape with contemporary interpretation. Every detail of this teapot is extremely well rendered by Jinshu who is in full command of his potting skills.
The surface of the teapot has a smooth, fine-textured, matte or sueded finish, and the clay features many small black speckles. There is some color flashing (yohen) on the teapot which has been contributed by the wood kiln from the placement of the teapot in relation to flame.
The colors on this teapot are delicate greys, pinks, and tan. The overall feeling of this teapot is soothing and the impression is elegant – it is a classic and stylish Jinshu teapot.
This is a handmade item – slight variations in the painting, colors, tooling, patterning and kiln effects of Chinese and Japanese tea wares are to be expected. We have carefully photographed this item as best as possible – please be aware that different device screens can render colors and subtle tones slightly differently.
