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.
Tenjiku is an area in Tokoname that is famous for its clay. Gafû used this clay for this shiboridashi, an object that is perfect for slow, low-temperature infusions of steamed green teas, such as gyokuros and senchas that are rich in umami.
