Extra Info

Tokoname-yaki is one of the six ancient kiln areas of Japan and is most famous for kyusu side handled teapots which have been produced since the Muromachi period (1338-1573). Tokoname clay is high in iron content and after firing produces a red-orange color known as shudei. It is also very fine and allows for unusual and intricate designs to be carved into each kyusu.
