This is one of Taiwanese ceramicist Xu De Jia's masterpieces. Hand-shaped tea pot in the style of a traditional Japanese kyusu. This tianmu, or "hare's fur" glaze is a rarity among the artist's typical celadons. Attached to the teapot is a handle of carbonized reed, carefully hand-wrapped in brass at the edge.
The rusticity of the reed handle contrasts beautifully with the refined detail of the tianmu glaze. Interior is glazed.
