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 red clay used for this teapot is true hon-shudei, which turns red when fired in oxidation without any artificial addition of iron oxide (bengara), unlike the majority of the red clays in Tokoname.
With no special decoration, this teapot is simple, light, easy to handle and contains a multipurpose volume. It can be used to prepare many different kinds of tea.
