This gem of a teapot is craftsmanship at its finest. A distinguished handle that contrasts the algae design on the side panel. True art from Mr. Ito!

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.

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