Roji Associates Black Nambu Ironware Cast Iron Teapot Warmer
This is a Nambu ironware teapot warmer by Roji Associates. It is designed to suit Nambu ironware teapots, and just by placing it on the table, it creates a special tea time setting.
A tealight candle holder goes under the stand, and the candle's flame gently warms the base of the teapot. Although the candle holder and stand are more decorative than functional, the heat-retention properties of the teapot itself is enough to keep the remaining tea warm during teatime.
The stand is heavy and has slightly jagged corners, so placing a towel or cloth under the stand is a good way to prevent surface scratches.
Roji Associates is a young Nambu ironware manufacturer located in Oshu City, Iwate Prefecture. It was founded by artist Hisao Iwashimizu and his brother in 2000, to create and showcase the simplistic beauty of Japanese kettles. The manufacturer's ironware pieces are characterized by its unique designs and vibrant colors. It brings innovation and modern sensibilities to a traditional handicraft.
In 2000, MOMA (the Museum of Modern Art in New York), chose to place Roji Associate's Nambu ironware in its museum shop.
