Tea Pot/Kyu-su by Yumiko Iihoshi
Handmade black ceramic teapots by Yumiko Iihoshi. The base, lid, handle, and spout constructed on the wheel and then put together for the perfect teapot. Kyu-su Tea Pot is a collaboration with Nankei Ceramics, long time manufacturers of Banko-yaki tea pot. Adapted for the modern kitchen, this tea pot has an unglazed matte black finish with a minimal angular design. The dense clay allows for many different fragrances of tea to be enjoyed. A must have item for a tea lover.
Trained in Kyoto and now based in Tokyo, Yumiko Iihoshi's porcelain is individually handcrafted treading the fine line of "handcrafted mass manufacturing". Craftsmen and potteries all across Japan participate in the manual process of creating Yumiko Iihoshi designs. Each individual piece has an unique look, slightly different in shape and glaze.
