Elegant details of elaborate craftsmanship as mentioned above are the hallmark of Tokoname pottery. Since the Edo Period ( 1603-1867) Tokoname has been a famous pottery center for high-quality, artistic pottery. Today, contemporary master craftsmen continually stretch their skills in new directions as they carry on traditional practices while embracing new ideas and designs. Tokoname teapots are collected as works of art or treasured as superb tea steeping vessels by enthusiasts around the world.

All of our Tokoname teapots are fit with a built-in clay strainer to prevent the tea leaves from entering your teacup. These are made from clay, and will be either the sasame or a ball-strainer style, depending on the preference of the potter. The style is listed for each teapot.
