Jacob Bodilly began studying and making tea-ware as an apprentice at the Leach pottery in St Ives, Cornwall.

Over the years Jacob has developed a unique body of tea-ware that responds to the practice of drinking specialist teas from Asia. His pottery designs follow the ancient themes for tea-ware that originates from Japanese tea culture.

The designs produced for Rare Tea Company are individually hand produced in small batches at Jacob's pottery studio in rural Devon. He blends raw materials by hand and follows traditional techniques; he uses no unnatural pigmentation as this can affect the taste of delicate teas. The glazes he uses are developed to work harmoniously with a broad range of specialist teas. The pottery work is made from stoneware clay and fired to 1300°C in a gas fueled kiln.

Stoneware is dishwasher safe, but it is advisable to wash carefully by hand and without strong detergents that may leave residue that may later affect the tea. The glazes are handmade and so over time take on some tea staining which adds character called ageing. Ageing is considered a desirable effect and illustrates that the pottery and tea are subtly interacting through the brewing process.

Overall it should be illustrated that the work is made in natural way, to best serve the natural delicacy of rare loose leaf tea.
