This Japanese craft piece embodies nature at its finest. It feels as if Mr. Ito carved this unique teapot from a piece of stone. Rich in simplicity.

One of Japan’s most dynamic potters, oiginally from Tokoname, Mr. Ito still retains his inner fire for design after 40 years work.

Second generation in ceramics, he has specialized in the art of teapot crafting. He controls every stage of the process: from the sourcing of the land for the clay to the final finishing. Firing with either gas or electricity for the desired result.

Mr. Ito also actively participates in various monthly creative meetings with other craftsmen - a true artist in constant evolution.

Each handcrafted piece is unique and has been catalogued separately to ensure that the piece you see is the piece you get.
