At the venerable age of 80, Japanese ceramist Gyokko is still an active artist whose energy do not seem to fade. He manages to keep in artistic vision: offering teapots that are both affordable, artisanal and complex.

Supported by his son and a few other artisans under his guidance, Gyokko specializes in affordable teapots: "My objective is to work together as a team in order to offer handmade teapots to everyone. I really believe that Japanese tea offers its full potential in this type of teapot."

Made with local clay from the coastal town of Tokoname, the teapot is not glazed thus the interior is slightly porous. We love the result: as authentic as the craftsman that created it.

Diameter of the opening: 5 cm

Height: 7 cm

Ji Hong Cup

This cup is named after the distinctive glaze which gives it its metallic highlights.

Hourglass

This hourglass with three timers allows you to watch the time pass before successfully pouring your  perfect tea. Three glass hourglasses are juxtaposed on a stainless steel support. Each hourglass has a duration of 3, 4 or 5 minutes.

Kabusecha Takamado

Grown and processed in the region of Uji in Japan, this 'shade-tea' is of great finesse. Shade structures which block up to 70% of the light are placed over the tea plants two weeks before harvest in order to soften the leaves and increase the chlorophyll concentration. Its infusion, vegetal in character, is delicately sweet and velvety. Notes of spinach, peas and cashew blend leaving a persistent pleasantly marine aftertaste.
