Handmade Tokoname-yaki Teapot

Description: Discover the exquisite artistry of Tokoname-yaki, a traditional Japanese pottery style hailing from the Chita Peninsula, with its focal point in Tokoname City, Aichi Prefecture. Tokoname-yaki belongs to the prestigious group of Japan's Six Ancient Kilns, renowned for its rich history and distinctive ceramic techniques.

Artist: Master Craftsman Murakoshi Fugetsu Our teapots are meticulously crafted by Murakoshi Fugetsu, a skilled artisan who studied under the guidance of the esteemed third-generation Yamada Jozan, designated as a Living National Treasure in Japan. Murakoshi Fukei has garnered various awards for his exceptional craftsmanship, making these teapots truly exceptional pieces of functional art.

Unique Features:

  • Handle-less Design: Our teapots feature a unique handle-less design, often referred to as "Hōhin," adding a touch of elegance to your tea-drinking experience.

  • Natural Materials: Crafted using only natural clay (tado), each teapot undergoes a meticulous process of water sifting to purify the clay. The presence of iron in the clay results in a distinctive vermilion color, creating a one-of-a-kind teapot. The use of a potter's wheel (rokuromōkei) ensures a deep and nuanced finish, enhancing the overall aesthetic appeal.


  • Water amount: 120cc(4.05 floz)
  • diameter : 9 cm ( 3.5 in ), Hight : 7 cm (2.75 in)

Tea Brewing Tips: The teapot's coarse mesh is designed to accommodate teas with robust shapes, such as light steamed leaves, such as Mori sencha, Organic superior sencha, and Koshun sencha. This ensures a brewing experience that perfectly captures the essence of your favorite teas.
