Susumuya teapot

A simple interpretation of the classic flat Japanese teapot grown out of a collaboration between Oji Masanori, Susumuya tea-house, and Tatsuo Umehara, third generation potter at Hokuryu Kiln, who carefully turns each piece separately on a wheel, before assembling the parts and precisely fitting the lid. The teapots are left unglazed, the colour developing during firing as the surface of the red Tokoname clay turns a deep even black - a porous finish which will develop and change over time. About 200mm by 120mm, and 70mm high.

£145.00 (Ex Tax:£120.83)
