Tasei Kiln Lustrous Sakura Pink Arita Ware Japanese Teapot
This is a lovely Arita ware teapot in a delicate sakura (cherry blossom) pink color. The lid is adorned with a three-dimensional sakura flower which is also the handle for the lid.
The lid has a lustrous shine giving it a luxurious and stylish feel. At Tasei Kiln, two skilled female artisans with over 40 years of experience paint the intricate and graceful patterns, and coat each item with a luster glaze. The glazed surface has a distinct textured glossy glimmer and shines beautifully under light.
The teapot is in a well-rounded and well-balanced shape. The strainer is in a "Sasame" style where the stainer is attached directly to the inside of the teapot. This allows the tea leaves to circulate easily inside the pot, making the tea more fragrant. This type of strainer is especially suitable when brewing high-quality Japanese tea.
To create a beautiful sakura theme setting for a tea party, match the teapot with teacups and small plates in the same sakura motif.
Tasei Kiln was established as a kiln of Arita Ware in 1956 and has been producing beautiful Arita ware for more than 60 years. They create tableware in a variety of unique shapes, not only round and square, and make friendly and hearty products based on the concept of decorating the tabletop with liveliness. The charm of Tasei Kiln's products is in their unique, simple, and easy-to-use designs, as well as in the delicate colors used in their painting.
The Pink Sakura Series is a collection of beautiful items decorated with pale pink and cheery blossoms on a shining glaze. They make for an eye-catching collection of teaware that will brighten up your table top. Although commonly associated with the arrival of spring, the blooms on these items are timeless and can be used any time throughout the year.

ABOUT ARITA WARE
Arita Ware, made in the town of Arita in Saga Prefecture, is the oldest porcelain production area in Japan's history. Arita porcelain is characterized by its translucent white porcelain surface, dyeing using "Gosu" (indigo pigment), and gorgeous red painting using glassy overglaze pigments (red, green, yellow, purple, and blue). The pottery is highly durable and is produced in a wide variety of styles, from fine art to daily necessities. It was exported to Europe, where it was prized as fine art and called "white gold".
Arita Ware is also a prestigious brand that is admired by ceramicists from other regions as a representative porcelain production area.
