Kyusu from Murata | M2Mr Murata Collection
This teapot was created by the Japanese ceramist Yoshiki Murata. The workshop of this potter is located in the coastal town of Tokoname in Aichi Prefecture. Turned by hand, this object is made with local clay. The patterns on the sides are created by applying seaweed to the clay at the moment of firing.
Each handcrafted piece is unique and has been catalogued separately to ensure that the piece you see is the piece you get.
This collector's item comes with a wooden box signed by the artist. Look after it. The ensemble could well appreciate in value over the years.
