Large Cloudstone Sidehandle

+

We are excited to present some affordable sidehandle pots inspired by the works of several potters in the community, including Petr Novak. Since these designs are mold-made, they are affordable and a great place to start one’s tea journey. They are made of the new Cloudstone clay blend, similar to our kettles and braziers. Cloudstone is a combination of volcanic minerals, rocks, crystals and iron blended into an earthy clay from deep strata. The clay blend produces smooth and nice tea with a structure that restores balance to the water in the tea. The handle and button are both very comfortable to use and designed to accommodate different hands to the best of our abilities.

These Cloudstone sidehandles are available in a dark and light color, caused by a slight difference in the firing temperature. The clay is identical, as is the effect. Due to this, each piece is unique with slight variations and marks from the firing process. We love the way that the kiln changes each piece in beautiful and unexpected ways.

The larger sidehandles are nice for boiling tea (fresh or spent leaves). You can pour from the large pots without holding on to the lid, which would get hot in boiling tea and it won’t fall off unless the lid is literally upside-down. This is very convenient for boiled tea, especially for boiling the spent leaves of an extra-special session and getting that extra mile out of your tea.

The volume of these larger sidehandles is approximately 900ml. This size is suitable for serving tea for 5-8 people.
