This unique and elegant Tokoname-yaki kyusu (teapot) is made from the iconic Tokoname shudei (朱泥) clay, decorated with branches of dainty sakura (桜 - cherry blossoms). The handle is ornamented with a carving in the shape of a butterfly.

Its built-in ceramic sasame filter is perfect for naturally straining tea, with a wide shape for faster pouring and less clogging.


Made by award-winning Tokoname craftsman Tsuzuki Seihō (都築青峰). Born in 1944, Seihō-san excels in kyusu crafting and also makes Chinese style teapots and gaiwans from Tokoname clay.

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
