DRILLING HOLES IN CLAY DOME (SIEVE)



THE DRILLING OF THE HOLES FOR THE INTEGRATED SIEVE


CLAY FILTER INSIDE FINISHED TEAPOT



Each teapot contains an integrated sieve behind the spout of the teapot. This design can be attributed to a teapot demonstration by ceramic artist and Utah State University professor John Neely at East Carolina University back in 1998. It is the most logical solution to those who prefer drinking loose tea. It allows for a thorough infusion of the (unrestricted) loose tea leaves. The sieve or clay filter (sasame) varies in design and is a integrated feature created by teapot artists in the Tokoname region of the Aichi Prefecture of Japan. The sasame is a feature found primarily integrated within Tokoname yokode kyusu (side-handle teapots).
