CHOH to SAKURA Kyusu (Teapot: 300ml)

Photo Gallery

Dimension: 300ml (10.56fl oz)
Sophisticated Tokoname Yaki
Made by Seihoh Tsukiji at Seihoh Kiln

Mr. Seihoh Tsukiji was born in 1944. His elegant and artful works are sustained, and he spares no effort with his high level traditional techniques and his original techniques. He won the awards of Aichi prefecture governor general, and many other awards. He is one of the leading authorities in the Tokoname Yaki industry.

This Kyusu gives the impression of a spring breeze with butterflies and cherry blossom petals. You will certainly feel that the room and atmosphere around this Kyusu are calm, relaxed, and leisurely.

The pattern and form are gentle and elegant. Butterflies and cherry blossom petals are stamped by a technique called MISHIMA. Before shaped clay is dried, patterns are marked by stamp stick with pigments for the color cherry blossoms petals. The butterfly is created by careful hollowing out at the handle. On the side, a pattern portraying the spring breeze is decorated by a traditional technique called NUNOME. The pattern is created by impressing fabric onto the clay.

The top form of the body is opened widely toward the outside; this shape is very rare. The handle of the lid is shaped subtle and delicately. The shoulder to bottom on side of body is carved quite gracefully. All of these aspects create a well-balanced harmony.

This Kyusu brings a beautiful and unique atmosphere, as would be expected from an artist of this caliber with steady techniques and enormous effort. This Kyusu is his bestseller which has sold well for more than 5 years, though the price is not so low. Of course, to consider the effort and technique on this Kyusu, this price is absolutely reasonable. If you are searching for a teapot of exceptional first-class quality, this would certainly be ideal.
CHOH to SAKURA Kyusu brings a relaxed and elegant atmosphere as if you were to breathe in a fresh spring breeze in a field of cherry blossom trees in springtime.

Tokoname Yaki

Kyusu produced in the Tokoname region in the Aichi Prefecture account for 30 to 40 percent of the market share in Japan. The Kyusu industry has developed in Tokoname because fine particle soil which contains a lot of iron has been mined there for many hundreds of years.
Tokoname Yaki artisans are traditionally known for excelling in the woodturning technique. The Tokoname woodturning technique is said to be the best in Japan. Tokoname Yaki can be produced thinly, exquisitely or decoratively.
The surface of Tokoname Yaki are generally vermilion or black in color. The vermilion color is due to iron that is contained in the local soil. The black color is created by placing carbon on the surface of the Kyusu. When this is heated to a high temperature, the iron and carbon create a black color.
Tokoname Yaki are made from fine particle soil and heated to a high temperature, so that they are quite strong.

Directions

- It is best to wash this item using only tepid water or mild chlorine-free dish washing detergent.
- If necessary, you may occasionally use a chlorine detergent. In that case, after using the chlorine detergent, we recommend you boil this item in water to remove the chlorine smell.
- When turning the Kyusu to pour tea, you must hold the lid in place with your finger, otherwise the lid could fall off the pot and possibly get damaged. This is the usual way to pour tea with a Kyusu.
- A clear plastic guard is placed over the tip of the Kyusu spout to protect the spout from breakage during transport. Before use, please remove the plastic guard.
