Soda Fired Kyūsu by Popalini & Jezando
Hand Thrown in Devon
Approximate measurements: 9cm height x 11cm width. 400ml

We’re very excited to receive some Kyūsu from Pop & Jez, they’re truly magnificent in their craftsmanship, skilfully formed with balance of weight, proportion and aesthetic beauty.

Created from Cornish clay with a round globe body makes for a great size to hold and decent capacity. A beautifully refined vessel, from its fine wide lid with a mushroom form finial, compact tapered spout, to its natural ergonomic handle, providing a graceful pouring experience.

The smooth surface is full of character and an amazing metallic shine and mottled effects of mossy greens and greys. With layers of colour blending into a copper band around the body and granular textural qualities. This spontaneity has been achieved by the pot being left unglazed until the wood firing, where during, soda has been applied to the surface.

Having an unglazed interior allows for a level of patina to develop as the clay interacts with tea oils, to enhance depth and flavour of future brews.
This Kyūsu is a unique interpretation of a Yokode Kyūsu, which is a traditional Japanese side handle teapot. This style of teapot encourages a small and graceful movement of the wrist when serving.

We absolutely love the approachable nature and ease in functionality of Kyūsu when choosing a brewing vessel.
