Renowned ceramic designer Masahiro Mori's take on a traditional kyusu teapot. This porcelain pot features a glazed coiled look on its base and removable lid. The side handle and spout with a built-in sieve create a right angle specifically formed for a gentle pouring motion that's easy on the wrists. Kyusu pots are traditionally used for green tea, but enjoy it with any of your favorite teas to start your morning solo or with another. Pair it with the Hakusan Porcelain Teacup to complete your tea set (sold separately).

History: 
Hakusan Porcelain was founded in 1779 in Hasami, a town with a storied reputation for generations of skilled ceramic craftsmen. After the Second World War, Hakusan enlisted renowned post-war designer Masahiro Mori, who focused on “forms for daily use, and to create pieces for production in the factory so that many people can appreciate and enjoy,” leading to their simple and elegant mid-century aesthetic. Now, Hakusan is Japan’s leading producer of porcelain dishware and household items with dozens of accolades to their name including “Good Design” and “Long Life Design” awards.
