Yamada Yûtarô is a very young potter from Tokoname who specializes in teapots and is already displaying incredible talent. The son of a Tokoname potter specializing in pots and vases, Yûtarô’s enthusiasm for tea has led him down the very difficult path of making kyûsu teapots. Today in Japan, young potters very rarely choose to perpetuate the craft of kyûsu making as a specialty. Moreover, he makes his own clay.
His teapots are extremely light and they handle remarkably well.

The gentle variations of the yellow, orange and pink colours on this charming round teapot result from a yôhen effect created by the flames during the firing. This type of colouring is quite rare and resulted in part from the white clay made by the potter.
