About this piece:
The brush work/stroke is going from full wide into thinner lines all over the teapot body. Also hitting the top of the pot. Follow the lines and find the beauty of hakeme.
This teapot, made by a hakeme technique used in the past in Japan. Using brush strokes on unfired clay vessel. On the right there is an old hakeme cup from Japan.
Making tea in this teapot makes a true natural taste experience, the cups clay and its glazing brings out the natural taste of tea, not altered, not changed in any way, a clean and pure taste. The combination of the right clay and glaze achieved the top tasting level among all the Jiri Duchek pots I tried already (of course this could vary from a person to person).
This teapot will nicely age, showing very tiny glaze cracks and its overall texture will be covered by tea patina.
