Of Japanese manufacture, Kyusu teapots are typical of the country.
Cup from Julie Lavoie | Neige
Using a wood-fired kiln, Julie Lavoie, ceramist, creates exquisite porcelain, both rich and rustic with its flames and the delicate imprint of cinders. The result: a rich "living white" effect, both precious and pure in its own way.
The craqueled finish has the benefit of evolving with use as the tannins permeate it little by little, also enriching its colour.
The artisanal aspect of these cups makes them all unique. This why the shape and capacity may vary from one to another. Think of it as a guarantee of unique pieces, all made by hand!
