Lovely, elegant black Japanese handmade teapot with flower paint. Body is transparent black or carbon black (as we express) with oil drop pattern with delicate shine. The black comes from reduction firing with rice-hulls in kiln. Melt pure gold was applied on lid knob, that makes teapot look gorgeous. And the gold lid makes the black more beautiful. 5 time firing in kiln. The surface is glazed and its texture is smooth and natural as if no glazing, inside is unglazed, so that tea and water touches the clay - that makes tea taste better. This teapot is rather light, body is relatively thin. The artist Syoryu developed own light clay after 3 years of research. Capacity is rather small approx. 160-170cc. Good to brew any kind of tea.
