Content: 180 ml

Author: Stefan Andersson

Quantity available: 3 teapots (limited series, only 5 pieces made altogether)

a notes by Stefan Andersson:

The teapots are thrown and assembled and fired inside a big kiln much like the Chinese dragon kilns used for thousands of years. They have been fired day and night for three days with wood and has all color from ash and flame. They have been nested in the middle of the kiln and kept from the most intense flames of the kiln so the might keep some of there precise form. In a wood firing may things might go wrong and great experience is needed to fire delicate pieces like these.

About the dragon kiln: The dragon kiln has its root back at least 4000 years and through out asia many different types of it has developed (like the Anagama). They are all more or less a tube shaped kiln with a chimney in one end and a firebox in the other. They use a very primitive combustion system and for them to reach peak temperatures of 1300 degrees celsius and more great amounts of wood is needed. Though very inefficient the process renders many effect you never see in any other kiln or firing and the kilns almost get personalities prone to one effect here and one there.
One can imagine how these kilns gave the first stoneware glazes as they pulled out pots and saw that the ash from the would melted on the pots and became glaze. The next step was simply to dip the pots in ash and modern glazes had started developing.
