Hi,

Is it possible to remove some light scratches from a yixing pot? Sanding maybe?

I have done it inside the pot and gone by wet sanding. It would work outside too but the problem is that it may discolour the pot, I mean you'll end up having a discoloured patch. Not worth it IMO.

I used to mind minor imperfections on my teapots, but not anymore nowadays.

Rather than think of it as flaw, i nowadays look at it as character, something unique about my teapot and that it is special. Helps maximize my brewing experience.

IMHO, of course. Don't risk trying to make something good but potentially damaging it.
