This is the second kyûsu teapot in a series of four ordered from the Tokoname artisan potter, Shôryû. It is actually made from red clay fired a second time with smoke, which gives it its black colour. The second firing is in reduction at lower temperature (around 800°C (1470°F) as opposed to 1200° (2200°F) for the first firing), and in the kiln the teapot is buried in rice husks.
Its round shape is typical of the potter's style. It is an extremely light Japanese teapot thanks to Shôryû's precision work on the wheel.

Ceramic filter.
