The artist carved it on a red cray teapot first, then paint blue and white color. Can you image the cranes on read teapot? At this stage the color of blue and white is vivid. After painting, the teapot is fired in kiln, fired in reduction. (little oxygen in kiln) Teapot came out from the kiln became black and the blue and white became darker like the pictures above which is perfect color harmony.
Setsudo doesn’t make so many small teapots. Black teapot is lesser than red one. It is also good for your collection.
