A teapot made of a special clay found in a air stole used in a small charcoal mine. The taste of tea out of this pot is very clear, a very slightly mild and tasty. The teapot is not glazed inside.
This piece comes from a last woodfired teaware by Jiri Duchek and Martin Hanus. It is made of bizen style of firing. Although white river stones were not used but a special local clay. In this firing Jiri Duchek tested 4 different clay how they would react. Bizen is fired usually longer and could take several days. In this occasion was fired for 36 hours.
A very nice and brief documentary from Bizen, Japan
