Iron Wash Teapot // by Popalini & Jezando
Hand Thrown in Devon
Approximate measurements 16cm height incl. handle x 15cm width.
A stunning stoneware iron wash teapot with hand formed brass handle. Created with great skill and care, beautifully balanced proportions, form and pour. Reminiscent of a household Tetsubin (iron kettle), no doubt inspired by Pop & Jez’s time spent creating and woodfiring in Japan.
Cornish clay with an iron wash glaze that’s been wood fired with soda creating a unique surface and texture. A speckled and granular gunmetal grey with areas of purple brushwork contrast with a painterly patch of deep smooth black, breaking through are mottled greens and greys. Inside, a smooth covering of blueish greens. Finished with their signature single hole tapered spout and tactile rounded brass handle its golden like colour, complementing the teapot perfectly.
One off piece. Handwash recommended.
