Types Of Tea Pottery
PorcelainPorcelain is one of the more sophisticated and complex ceramics to be made, thanks to the high temperatures required and the numerous materials needed to manufacture it. However, it is popular thanks to the ceramics being impermeable and tough.
Porcelain is always decorated with intricate patterns, partially thanks to the of it
StonewareStoneware is a superior version to earthenware, as it is less porous. It is fired at higher temperatures, and therefore produces a more stone-like quality, hence the name.
Stoneware ceramics are mostly seen in Ancient Jisefea, as the ceramics were used to form large teapots to contain several litres of tea at any time.
MagiwareMagiware teapots and ceramics are now the most popular form of pottery, alongside porcelain. Magiware ceramics are made with magical fire, a type of fire that regenerates the environment rather than harming it. Magiware teapots and ceramics are the most durable of the ceramics, as the fire seals any pores and creates an incredibly impermeable and sturdy material.
EarthenwareEarthenware pottery was the first form of pottery to be invented by the Cilvarthians. These potteries were not always glazed, and were used more as ornaments than serving actual purpose. Earthenware, also known as terracotta, is commonly a reddish-orange colour, thanks to the presence of iron oxide within it. The oldest evidence of earthenware dates back to Ancient Aurea, almost 19,000 years ago.
Tea pottery dates back tens of thousands of years at most, and archaeologists constantly discover new remnants of past cultures, mostly in the forms of these ancient teapots. Ancient teapots are so common, approximately 15% of the population of Lancos has discovered an ancient teapot. These specific teapot share similarities, such as flowers painted around the lid and finger ridges embedded into the handles, for comfort.
Thanks to the tea-centric cultures of Cilvarth, archaeology is a popular profession and many seek to discover the ancient teapots of the planet. There are around 100 teapot museums on the two continents on Cilvarth; the largest museum is the National Aurean Teapot Gallery, in Central Aricos.
