Yamamoto Taisen is a multi-talented traditional Banko-yaki potter. In addition to teapots, he also makes various instruments for the sencha ceremony. While he uses the typical traditional purple Banko-yaki clay, he employs others as well, and produces glazed items.
Moreover, he has great mastery of the wheel, which allows him to create relatively fine, light teapots in comparison with average Banko-yaki works.

Here, Taisen has created a kyûsu teapot in typical purple Banko-yaki clay, but with a wide shape and an almost flat bottom, which is particularly well suited to Japanese steamed teas with barely broken leaves. The broad surface of water in contact with the air, combined with this type of clay’s strong heat-keeping qualities, makes it easy to regulate the infusion temperature.
