Japanese Kyusu - Green Celadon Golden Horse Obori Soma-yaki Teapot - 240ml
This exquisite Obori Soma-yaki kyusu (teapot) features a crazed green celadon glaze decorated with a classic golden horse motif. Its built-in ceramic do-ake filter is perfect for naturally straining tea.
Obori Soma-yaki (大堀相馬焼) is a type of Japanese porcelain produced in the town of Namie in Fukushima Prefecture, and dates back to the early Edo period.
The most distinctive features of Obori-soma ware are its celadon glazes which feature large crazing patterns, hand-painted horse motifs, and double-walled construction. This double-walled technique provides insulation, keeping liquids hot and your hands cool, and is unique to Obori Soma-yaki.
