Tokonameware red clay pentagon teapot

¥24,200

This is a teapot made by Jinshu atelier for Chinese tea and Taiwanese tea. It is characterized by its pentagonal shape and fine grain texture.

Mr. Ito of Jinshu atelier is full of originality in his style of creating surface texture, called Arashi Shibori. By using clay from Tokoname, the teapot has a softer, warmer texture than Chinese clay teapots.

The tea strainer inside is also made by hand using the same clay. This is a wonderful teapot that combines meticulous craftsmanship with bold design.

<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.
