This Obori Soma-yaki Japanese tea set includes one double-walled kyusu (teapot) and two double-walled yunomi (teacups) each featuring an elegant celadon glaze decorated with hand-painted horse motifs.

Like many pieces of Obori-soma ware, this teacup features a double-walled construction, with cherry blossom petal shaped cutouts.

The teapot has a simple ceramic do-ake filter, which compared to a steel mesh filter, introduces no metallic flavours to the 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.
