This kyusu was made with a black and gold mineral rich stoneware clay. The exterior is not glazed, exposing the marvelous attributes of these two marbled clays. The interior of the teapot has my signature soft white glaze which helps make the color of the tea being steeped more visible. The soft white glaze also allows some of the natural clay features to come forth. The teapot lid is measured and trimmed with precision to ensure that it fits nice and tight. The built in strainer has approximately 259 small holes that are 1 millimeters in diameter. This strainer functions excellent with all teas.

- A teapot of this size can serve 2-3 small cups. 

-The driftwood was found at the Skokomish River, WA. The wood was carved by hand with small chisels and lightly burned, brushed, and sanded. There is a soft texture to it that will stimulate many sensations. The wood is sealed with a thin layer of wood glue to preserve its natural qualities, and it is adhered with a high temp steel reinforced epoxy. 

- Fired in an electric kiln to cone 5 (2118 - 2167 F)

- All Pottery materials are non toxic, lead free, and food safe. 

- When I am working on these unique teapots, I make sure that I do not create too much disconnection from what is naturally seen in nature. I intentionally avoid covering up all of the natural qualities of the clay. I want the person holding or viewing my work to feel a strong re-connection to earth/nature.
