This is one of Taiwanese ceramicist Xu De Jia's masterpieces. Hand-shaped tea pot in the style of a traditional Japanese kyusu. This is one of his few works using two different materials: the teapot is of dark clay, glazed in beautiful sky blue celadon. 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 celadon's refinement. Celadon glaze is lined with a network of fine crazing that deepens in color with use. Interior is glazed.
