A native of Tokoname, his passion for tea and pottery led Itô Gafû to take the path of kyûsu-shokunins, artisans specializing in Japanese teapots. Very unusual in Tokoname, he considers it a matter of honour to make his clay himself from raw materials.
This is a handsome little shibori-dashi, a perfect tool for slow infusions, generally at low temperature. This one is very light and finely worked. The decoration is “mogake,” obtained by wrapping a special kind of seaweed around the object before firing it. This is a traditional technique typical of Tokoname and perfected in the nineteenth century.

* These teapots are entirely handmade, so their shapes and sizes may vary slightly from one to the next.
The real colours may be slightly different from those in the photos.
