Crafted by Quỳnh, a 6th generation Vietnamese potter and one of the few artists dedicated to creating handmade teapots in the historic ceramic village of Bát Tràng, Việt Nam.
This teapot features a distinctive button-shaped lid, a circular foot, an oval body, and a straight spout that faces upwards– similar to Shui Ping-style teapots. Quỳnh uses a proprietary blend of local red clay and Chinese red clay, and fires in high heat– resulting in a deep, rich chestnut brown/red hue.
When brewing, the pot's unglazed and porous interior enhances the silkiness and flavors of a variety of teas, particularly highly oxidized oolong teas, black teas, and sheng-style dark teas.
We love this pot for everyday use and encourage you to do so too as the porous nature of the teapot absorbs the tea's oils, slowly developing a beautiful patina similar to a well-seasoned cast iron skillet.
The level of quality found in Quỳnh's creations is a rare find in Việt Nam. His teapots represent a blend of traditional techniques with a modern artistic sensibility in Vietnamese teaware. Each tea pot is a vessel for tea and a work of art. We're excited to bring these exceptional teapots to you, designed for those who appreciate meticulous craftsmanship in their teaware.
Each piece is assembled by hand - no two are the same.
