An eye-catching fine ceramic tea strainer from Jun Kiln, shaped like a Chinese wok with a matching stand. Just place it over a pitcher or cup and pour your tea through it. The double-layer strainer has fine stainless steel mesh on top to filter out the smallest particles of tea dust and leaves, and a simple perforated ceramic strainer below for extra strength and durability.
The striking dappled blue-on-black pattern of the thick glaze is made by painting multiple layers of glaze and using many natural metal oxide pigments to make different layered colors. The ceramic is fired at a very high temperature that is very carefully controlled to let the glaze slightly drip down the sides and create the pattern.
Jun style porcelain was created in the Song Huizong period of the Song Dynasty in China (1082) and was produced in Yuzhou City, Henan Province.
