Wood-fired pots from Taiwan

by Bok » Dec 21st, '17, 20:04

As others before me, there is a time when the tea closet becomes to full and some pots are better sent off to other destinations where they may see more use...

Pot A
Wood-fired over three weeks from a potter from Tainan, Taiwan. I lovingly call this pot, the pot from the fires of hell! It has a lot of funky colours and structures going on from the prolonged firing. There were quite a few spectacular pieces in that kiln! Some almost oily, shiny looking spots, quite dark and rough looking patterns.

Clay from Miaoli, TW 120ml

I only used this pot once, it works well, but my hands are a bad fit for it, so I did not use it afterwards.

Any Taiwanese tea will do well in this pot.

Pot B
Wood-fired from Taiwan, bought it in Sanyi, a village famous for woodcraft, but full of pottery shops as well, a long time ago. Almost unused.

Lid is a bit lopsided from the firing, but it is watertight and close fitting!

Clay from Miaoli, TW 150ml

Good for any Taiwanese tea. Can imagine it working well for Puerh as well. Green maybe not so much.

All shipping from Taiwan. If interested PM me, payment via PayPal, my account is in NTD but above offer marked in US for simplicity’s sake.

Let me know if there are any questions!
First one is from the kiln where my teacher is firing his works along with some other potters.

Also, this one is posted already here, have a look for more images https://www.teaforum.org/viewtopic.php?f=28&t=103
