Tea Pot II is one of Chee Yong's oxidation-fired Tenmoku Series. Tenmokus are known for their variability, depending on the firing and cooling process. The deep undulating curves created around the upper clay body allows the iron content within the molten Tenmoku glaze to form surface crystals, (as in the "oil spot" glaze), or remain in solution deeper within the glaze for a rich glossy rich colour, as in this case.

Complemented with a deep curved cane handle, this teapot would be most comfortable with tea lovers who love beautiful pottery.

Note: Tenmoku takes its name from the Tianmu Mountain (天目 Mandarin: tiān mù; Japanese: ten moku; English: Heaven's Eye) temple in China where iron-glazed bowls were used for tea. It is a type of Japanese pottery and porcelain that originates in imitating Chinese stoneware Jian ware (建盏) of the southern Song dynasty (1127–1279). Tenmokus are known for their variability. During their heating and cooling, several factors influence the formation of iron crystals (oil spots or hare fur) within the glaze. Oil spots are more common in an oxidation firing.
