Crafted By Wang Ying
This gorgeous Wang Ying teapot was handcrafted to incorporate a walnut wood handle that is beautifully fused to the zi ni clay body. A generous strainer ensures a smooth pour, while the long handle makes this a pleasure to use. The wood handle is a nod to Korean and Japanese teaware aesthetics. It is very rare to find yixing artists capable of incorporating wood into their work due to the difficulty of fitting wood pieces.
*Note: do not boil the wood handle section of the pot while preparing for use. Walnut is extremely resistant to water and heat under normal use, but boiling the wood could expand the wood too quickly causing small cracks to appear.
