Shudei teapot

Fujifilm X-E2, XF-60mm Macro and one Canon Flash in manual mode. Velvia film simulation.

I received this shudei (red clay) teapot from Fugetsu as a present a couple of days ago. The sujibiki technique accents the horizontal lines, making the teapot appear fresh off the potter's wheel. This piece of art is impressive because of its simplicity. It seems not to attract any attention to the viewer. But if you hold it, it feels light and the surface velvety.
