This Kiyomizu-yaki houhin (handleless teapot) is has a deep shape, and is decorated in a style called ao-mishima (青三島), In contrast to traditional mishima which employs white slip to highlight stamped designs, here a stylish blue is used. The inside of the vessel has a smooth glaze which contrasts with the textured exterior. In addition to the filtering grooves at the spout, there are holes in the lid to aid in filtering and pouring.

This houhin was made by Igura Toshiya (井栗敏也) of Toshiya Kiln (敏也窯). Born in 1962, Igura-san opened his own kiln in 1984 and has since been known for his unique spins on classic styles.

Kiyomizu-yaki (清水焼) (also called Shimizu-yaki) is a type of Japanese pottery that traditionally comes from Gojōzaka district near Kiyomizu Temple, in Kyoto, Japan. A subset of Kyo-yaki which refers to all pottery made in the Kyoto area, Kiyomizu ware has been produced since the 16th century.
