Finally Fired

Well, it hasn’t been quick & I’ve been living in fear of having the unfired clay pots damaged, but we’ve finally managed to get Master Zhou’s Yixing teapots fired. He made each of these in less than a couple of hours during his talks in the UK – the first in Postcard teas in London, then the second in the Leach Pottery in St Ives. Thanks again to Matthew Tyas for the Youtube video of the second pot being made.

Special thanks to Michel Francois for firing them – I know he was dreading anything going wrong during the firing, but I think they’ve come out really rather well.
