The highly experienced Murata Yoshiki is one of the leading “kyûsu shokunin” potters in Tokoname. His work is known for its technical and artistic daring, a desire to stand out from the run of the mill. The hammered surface of his teapots is one of the major marks of his work.

These kyûsu teapots are made from red shudei clay, and have been smoke-fired in an electric kiln a second time, half buried in rice husks, which produces the contrast between red and black.
Their wide, flat shape makes them very good tools for preparing steamed Japanese green teas.
