About Celadon Teapot (B):
A charming Ru Yao teapot that can be gripped and poured by hand without the traditional teapot handle. Its smooth texture and soft mint blue-green color is easy on the eyes, and its glaze makes it easy to clean and to use with a variety of teas.
This type of Celadon is also known as “Ru Yao,” or “Ru ware,” referring to the type of kiln that it was traditionally fired in. The Ru kiln is a famous kiln that produced teaware for the emperors around 1125 AD. Typically, simple grey stoneware was coated in a soft, creamy glaze that came out in an eggshell blue, sometimes with greenish or lavender hues. Often the glaze would uniformly crack in the kiln, creating an effect that came to be seen as a positive quality and part of Ru Yao’s signature appearance.
