This beautiful hand-formed Tokoname-yaki kyusu (teapot) is features ume (plum blossom) decorations and has a simple ceramic filter that will add no metallic flavours to the tea.

Made without the use of a potter's wheel, this teapot has a warm, organic shape. Made by Itou Furo (Stamped Furo, 不老).

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:

13.6cm (5.4in) - width (including handle)
8.6cm (3.4in) - height
250ml - capacity

Condition: Very good
