We've been looking for a long time for a studio to work with to craft contemporary pots that could meet our standards, both for the quality of clay and also for workmanship.
I really can't find fault in the craftsmanship of these pots - the balance, proportions, lid fit and aesthetics are perfect. The clay also is excellent - pure zini clay processed from aged original Yixing zini ore.
They were fired in a large gas kiln, being pushed slowly on trolleys through the kiln in a similar process that Factory 1 used for their firings.
I'm happy to introduce this range of pots - the first contemporary pots we've felt happy to sell in the past few years.
Inside is a single hole filter. Combined with the short straight spout, this makes it very easy to clear any blockages when brewing. From our tests, this clay works very well with puerh, liubao and yancha.
