Smooth Operator- Unglazed Gongfu Pot 150 ml.
Living Tea is overjoyed to share the work of our friend, a local ceramicist and tea lover residing in Olympia, Washington. In the artist's own words, "this teapot series continues to evolve, directed and influenced by nature’s effortless beauty and wisdom. The endless possibilities of shape, texture, color, are my greatest teachers. During the creative process, I have a very clear intention to explore and walk the line where art meets functionality. Ultimately, I want the people who hold my work in their hands to see these teapots as another combination of elements and materials that nature put together. My hands are tools receiving natures instructions." Living Tea shares this philosophy of relating to tea as a means of working within and learning the principles of nature. These principles guide our lives through balance, insight, harmony, reverence and clarity. And, of course, these pots make a fine cup of tea.
Ideal for 3-5 people. Unglazed interior, and thus we recommend removing leaves from the interior between tea sessions as the oils will influence the clay over time.
