Traditional Tokoname Yaki
Made by Tatsuo Umehara
SAKURA means cherry blossoms, and BORI means carving in Japanese. Mr. Umehara expresses the beauty of cherry blossoms on this teapot. The round shape of this teapot enhances its characteristics of unique elegance and beauty. The black color makes its pale pink cherry blossoms more beautiful. Fluttering petals of cherry blossoms remind us of a gentle spring breeze warmly covering the green tea in the teapot. This teapot is beautiful and sophisticated.
The cherry blossoms are painted elaborately and delicately, using shades and layers of color to make the painting more lively and dynamic. Vermilion and green color add vivid accent, and the fluttering cherry blossoms give us an image of the coming of spring. After painting petals, stamen and twigs are engraved on the teapot. Hand-carved designs offset the color of the cherry blossoms.
Not only the design of cherry blossoms but also the shape and color of this teapot adds to the warm atmosphere. The round shape of this teapot is not seen in earthenware very often, and its shape makes a unique impression. The clay color called SHUDEI, which is typical for Tokoname Yaki is reddish brown, but the method of carbon reduction turns its color to black. This technique is one of the traditional crafts of the Tokoname region, yet its appearance is refined and modern.
This charming teapot tempts you as if a sweet spring breeze stirs the green tea at first pour. Please enjoy drinking Japanese green tea with this teapot which reminds you of a tender and warm spring in Japan.
