Check out these two movies about Jiri Duchek and his work. Movie1 and Movie2
A very nicely shaped teapot with a right size (for someone), or for two people. A well fitting lid and easy pour.
A teapot of mystery, both the making process, the firing side, used also charcoal and the same time the effect of this ceramic slip on tea.
This and further coming pieces are coming from a batch of 29 teapots made for pu-erh.sk.
The teapot is not glazed neither inside nor outside. Jiri Duchek just told me that these teapots should be more studied, even for myself I am discovering new ‘features’ of this clay fired to black mat colour. He says that it is good to pour tea over the teapot time to time so that they/teapots will ‘come into blossom’.
I might say tea will taste like ‘purified’ mountain spring water compared to city tap water. This of course will make your tea taste different as in other teapots you have. In tea you will discover new mellow, softer and watering notes.
I noticed that tea is more body friendly after a bath in this teapot. I mean here a comfortable feeling around stomach are. Also the energy is like pronounced when some teas I have in it.
Each piece of a batch of ceramics made in 2021 will have one additional photo. These images are taken during a visit of Jiri Duchek from its surrounding, nature, simply places where he lives and creates his pieces.
Duchek’s black pot #0310JD2021
Ručne vyrobený v peci na drevo vypálený čajník. Čajník má neglazované vnútro. Sitko čajníka má najmenej 10 dierok.
Čaj ‘vykúpaný’ v tejto konvičke bude mäkší, ‘vodnatejší’, podobný vode z horskej studničky.
