Artisan tea ware, often fired in a wood kiln, is unique, so only one original piece or set can be purchased. Handmade unique pieces are not artificially perfect and often have intentional, but sometimes unplanned "jokes", unevenness, tears from melted glaze, small grains, bumps, stains or cracked glaze. These pieces are usually not perfectly straight or symmetrical. These imperfections are part of the magic of these unique items and are not a defect or reason for a complaint. If you prefer flawless ceramics and porcelain, we recommend our serial products from industrial production.
