Yutaka Arabesque Tokoname Japanese Teapot Set 9.4oz(270ml)-Sasame and Ceramesh
This teapot set is made of Tokoname ware with delicate floral and arabesque patterns painted on the edges. At first glance, the decoration is modest, but it is full of traditional techniques.
The flowers are made by pressed wooden stamps into the clay before drying, and the arabesque pattern is made by carving and then adding ink to the leaves areas after firing to make the decoration stand out even more.
It is made in a finish called "Yaki-jime", which is a process that does not apply glaze, allowing the pottery a rustic and moist texture that makes you want to touch it.
The lids of Tokoname Teapot are known for their tight fit and airtightness, which allows the tea to slowly draw out its flavor.
This set comes in a wooden box, making it a perfect gift. Tokoname ware has the largest share of Teapot production in Japan.
