A classic shape of drum style teapot with round body and a big lid, make it very easy to use. The pot is made with a mix of two clay with different colours that is done intentionally to create a kind of swirled effect. Two clays were carefully placed together and then bit up many times until both clays are sticked together as one piece. The mixed clay would have to carefully handled for keeping the swirled patten.
