ユアン クレイグ的 陶芸生活
Thank you for visiting my blog.
This blog about my husband, Euan Craig, who is an Australian potter in Japan; about his works, making process, our life style and our family.
18 October 2010
The considerations for
the ease of holding and pouring
a Japanese tea pot ( KYUSU) are
that the angle between the handle and the spout should be 80 degrees,
(of course there are other details....)
If a tea pot can be stood on its handle, as in this photo,
we can see that the line through the handle and the spout converge at the centre of the body.
If it is not in the center, it will lose balance and not be able to stand.
This balance makes less stress when holding the tea pot and makes pouring easy.
Euan hasn't made tea pots for some time.
He has, of course, made some for left handed people too.
I think it looks very lovely when they are lined up like this.
I'm looking forward to seeing them finished.
