This handmade Tokoname-yaki kyusu (teapot) features a uniquely flared lid knob and pronounced 'rokurome' (ろくろ目): spiraled lines left by the potter's fingers while throwing on the pottery wheel. This kyusu has a simple ceramic do-ake filter which adds no metallic tastes to the tea.

Made by Iwahashi Ouzan (岩橋應山), 1919-2002.

Tokoname-yaki (常滑焼) is a type of Japanese pottery that traditionally comes from Tokoname in Aichi Prefecture, Japan. The site of one of Japan’s Six Ancient Kilns, pottery has been made in Tokoname since the 12th century.

Today, Tokoname ware is known for its iconic brick-red clay called shudei. Famously used in teaware and bonsai pots, this clay’s vibrant colour comes from its rich iron content. Tea steeped in unglazed Tokoname teapots is said to have a mellower taste.

Dimensions:

13.3cm (5.2in) - width (including handle)
8.5cm (3.3in) - height
250ml - capacity

Condition: Excellent
