Tokonameware black clay teaware, Houhin

¥4,620

Houhin from Tokoname ware studio, Hakuyo Toen.

Black clay is a typical clay for Tokoname ware, along with red clay. Hakuyo Toen's black clay is smooth and has a grayish hue. The surface has a slightly uneven mottled pattern due to the glaze.

The treasure bottle has a cute rounded shape. Unlike a teapot, it does not have a handle, so it is easy to store in a cupboard or drawer. The mesh-shaped tea strainer is also carefully made from the same clay as the main body.

Hohin is often used for making sencha, but it can also be used to brew other types of tea, such as oolong tea and black tea.

<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.
