I found the inspiration to create this tea set in some of my favourite tea serving pots, 公道杯, from Taiwan and Japan. I wanted to maintain the simplicity of the traditional pot, while adding some minimalist structural elements, holds for the fingertips and an inbuild filter, for leaves or ice, and where the tenmoku glaze could break into its rich iron rust colour.


This tea set is dishwasher safe and food safe, although washing by hand is highly advised. The sharper edges can be susceptible to chipping if they’re hit hard so, please handle your pots with care. Remember, this isn’t a mass-produced factory pot; this is a unique handmade piece. The luscious dark tenmoku glaze may pick up water stains from limestone-rich water sources but the easily they wash away.
