Tokonameware black clay spatula pattern teapot

This is a teapot for Chinese tea and Taiwanese tea made by Tokoname Ware studio Gyokko Toen.

Black clay is a typical clay for Tokoname ware, along with red clay. Gyokko Toen's black clay is characterized by its elegant luster and deep color.

By rotating the teapot on a potter's wheel and processing the surface, a beautiful uneven pattern is created. In Kyushu, this technique is called Tobikanna, and in Shigaraki, it is called Tochiri.

The mesh-shaped tea strainer is also carefully made from the same clay as the main body. Although it is carefully made, the price is low, so it is recommended as an introduction to Chinese tea and Taiwanese tea teapots.

<Tokoname ware>

Tokoname ware is a type of pottery made in Tokoname City, Aichi Prefecture. During the Middle Ages, it was Japan's largest ceramic production area, and in addition to daily necessities such as plates, bowls, and pots, it also produced large pottery such as jars and pots.

From the end of the Edo period (around 1858 AD), red clay tea utensils and sake utensils were also made. Since the mid-Showa era (1962 AD), electric furnace technology for red clay has been established.

There are clays suitable for teapots, such as red clay and black clay, and the techniques used to make teapots are extremely high. It is Japan's largest teapot production area.
