Today, we introduce a very artistic teapot.
An Japanese teapot artist carved flying cranes.
It is like flying in water or flying in dream.

His very detailed work bring you into it.
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 coordination!
