TEA MOUNTAIN by Markus Karstiess 
When Art and Tea unites. Very proud to present these sculptures by Düsseldorf based contemporary Artist Markus Karstiess. It’s a project we worked on for the past 2 years, bringing another dimension to your Cha Xi.
From 65 Million years old material turned into unique pieces of contemporary art. 
 

Traditionally small tea sculptures have been used to check on the correlation of temperature of the tea and the clays properties. These modest sculptures are build on this tradition, connecting the elements: earth, water, air and fire.

For the “Tea Mountain” ferrous clay was taken by hand from a mine in Westerwald / Germany. The clays from the Westerwald region / Germany date back to 65 Million years and rank among the best in Europe. This material, still humid after millions of years was formed into sculptures, without any further processing, slowly dried and eventually fired at 1300 degree Celsius in an anagama-kiln from the IKKG in Höhrgrenzhausen, using wood from the surroundings forests. The ashes cause the glaze on the side of the sculpture facing the fire directly. Depending on the position of each piece in the kiln the glaze changes, which makes each of them unique.
