This expertly crafted Tokoname-yaki kyusu (teapot) features a nasu (eggplant) shape, and is thrown from Tokoname kokudei (黒泥) clay, which has the same properties as the iconic red shudei (朱泥) but is fired in reduction producing a deep black.

The surface is unpolished and unsmoothed, in a style called sujihiki (筋引) which is a subtler variation of rokurome (ろくろ目 - potters' wheel marks) which shows the flow of the potter's fingers as they shaped the piece on the wheel.

The teapot's built-in ceramic debeso filter is perfect for naturally straining tea.

Made by Murakoshi Fugetsu (村越風月). Born in 1950, Fugetsu-san is a third generation potter known for his organically shaped kyusu finished in the sujihiki style.

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:

12.9cm (5.1in) - width (including handle)
9.8cm (3.9in) - height
270ml - capacity
