While we love and admire the look of traditional Tokoname teapots, we also appreciate the fun and whimsy of some of the more modern designs. There is something joyous about this teapot. It might be the strings of multicolored metallic carved dots that run across the pot’s lid and continue down its body. Or perhaps it’s the contrast between the smooth black clay and the textured, fresh-off-the-paint-roller look of the creamy white coating on the pot’s upper half?
Although it may be playful in appearance, this teapot maintains the quality and performance of its more ‘serious’ kin. The low, wide-belly shape gives the teapot good balance in pouring, the lid fits perfectly with no wiggle or play, and the handle is comfortable to hold.
With a color scheme that compliments a multitude of other teawares, and of a quality build, this teapot would make a wonderful gift for both a tea enthusiast or ceramics admirer.
This is a handmade item – slight variations in the painting, colors, tooling, patterning and kiln effects of Chinese and Japanese tea wares are to be expected. We have carefully photographed this item as best as possible – please be aware that different device screens can render colors and subtle tones slightly differently.
