This petite traditional red mud teapot is characterized by its smooth texture and minimalistic round form. Handmade from natural clay by Jinsui, a 100-year-old kiln in Tokoname City, Aichi Prefecture, using traditional and exremely careful methods of craftsmanship.


SIMPLE, MINIMAL DESIGN - The artist says, "The most difficult thing is to create a smooth teapot without patterns."

The beauty of the molding is a testament to the skills of the meisters who makes their living with the potter's wheel.


Over time, the surface gradually becomes smoother and more lustrous. These teapots are extremely light, and their handling is excellent.
