The young prodigy from Tokoname, Itô Gafû, is truly crazy about teapots and Japanese tea, but also about Chinese tea. His love and knowledge of tea are advantages that enable him to create wonderful tools for preparing tea.
One of his particularities is that he makes his clay himself, which is very unusual today.
The mogake technique is typical of Tokoname. Amamo seaweed is wrapped around or placed on the clay before firing, which creates golden motifs on the finished piece. Here are some very handsome gaiwans decorated using this technique. It goes without saying that Gafû goes to the seaside and collects the seaweed himself.
