    Incredible work! Wow is all I can say. Like drinking out of something made by nature itself. I almost ant to believe these formed naturally, rather than by human hand. Beautiful craftsmanship. My new favorite cups.

    Exquisite pot. Beautiful. Elegant. Feels good in the hand. Incredibly functional. Beautiful doesn’t always mean functional. Clay tastes good. Pours beautifully. Amazing piece. 🙏🏼

    This is my second purchase from this shop and I'm just as pleased with this mug as I was with the pot I previously purchased. This cup has a great hand feel, is extremely well made, and holds just the right amount of liquid I needed for it to be a companion piece to another wood fired pot I purchased. The peachy tones and red feldspar crystals give this mug a uniquely beautiful hand feel and appealing texture. Very happy, thank you!

    As described, this is indeed a beautiful kyusu with excellent design. I've been admiring all of the fine details in person. It can even do tricks! I've brewed a variety of Japanese and Taiwanese greens with great results. The ball filter is perfect, and handles fukamushi just fine. Everything was very well packed and it shipped quickly. I love this teapot, thank you so much!

    I love everything about this teapot!--the size, the lid fit and pour, the mesh screen inside, the roughness of the fired clay on the belly of the teapot and how it appears almost mossy and earthen. Don't let the ~35 ml capacity fool you; this cute thing is perfectly suitable and functional for brewing small cups of pu erh (see attached!)--the width of the pot allows the tea leaves to open fully. The overall design of this teapot is beautiful, and I appreciate its craftsmanship very much. Packaging of the pot was also very secure and well done. I am very happy with my purchase, and hope to see CooperJ pouring out more teapots (pun intended) from his studio soon!

Cooper Jeppesen, Ceramicist

I have been involved in ceramics a majority of my life; starting as a kid who loved clay. I continued through my high school and college years forming my aesthetic style as a ceramic artist and finding a love for functional wares. I find inspiration in nature and enjoy creating items that nod to shapes and figures that are found in the organic world. I work with my heart, head and hands in order to create functional and sculptural items that intrigue and satisfy.

I work in a variety of wood fired kilns across the Pacific Northwest to fire my pieces. I enjoy the spontaneous effects that wood fired kilns provide as well as the community of people it takes to run these kilns for many days.

Wood kilns can produce temperatures of 1400°C (2,500 °F), which allows the wood to produce fly ash and volatile salts while it burns. This complex interaction of ash, salts, minerals in the clay and the flame itself are what give wood fired pots their unique characteristics. Wood ash might lightly settle on a piece during the firing, or accumulate to the point where the ash drips down the sides of a pot, or the ash might even accumulate around the pot until it is completely submerged. Placement of pieces within the kiln also greatly affects the pottery’s final appearance, pieces closer to the fire may become immersed in embers and ash, while those further from the flame may only be lightly touched by ash effects and salt. This is why the results differ from each kiln as well as each time a kiln is fired.

Please contact me if you would like to learn more about the wood fired process!
