Hailing from Tokoname, Itô Seiji, alias Jinshû, is a kyûsu shokunin, that is, an artisan specialized in teapots. He has over 40 years of experience in the art. He considers and thinks of his kyûsus as first and foremost everyday tools for preparing tea. Ease of use, type of tea, etc.: these are the concerns he has in mind when he is working on his high-quality products. With extraordinary attention to the aesthetics of lines and shapes, he makes a wide range of teapots, but his very personal style can be seen in all of them.
While the “inro” lid of this red shudei teapot has been smoothed in the normal way to give it a slightly shiny colour, the body has not been smoothed. The vertical lines were drawn before giving the body its round shape, so it is as if they were swollen from the inside, producing very dynamic motifs.
