We have wanted to add some wood-fired pots to our Fang Xia range of Yixing teapots for some time now & are very happy to be able to offer these.   These were fired in a wood kiln in Yixing that fires once each month.  Each firing takes three days to complete.   The pots are placed inside a protective container called a 'xia bo', as used in ancient times to protect the surface from becoming glazed with ash.   The wood firing creates a unique finish on the surface, a slight shine & seems to make the water taste smoother and more refined when brewing tea.

The shape is based on a famous teapot made by well known late Qing early ROC maker "Wang Yin Chun". 

This Hongni comes from Yixing's Huang Long Shan mining area.  This has been stone grounded, hand-sorted and left to rest to improve plasticity.  

The pot itself is half-handmade - pressing the clay by hand into a form to construct the shape of the body, handle and spout, which are then joined together by hand.

Inside is a single filter.
