The artist SOUKO already retired, no longer making teapots.
This teapot was made a few decades ago.
His teapot is very thin and light in weight – they were made with high technique. Handmade (also strainer as well) . He is one of greatest teapot master in Japan. Good water flow, lid is perfectly fit to the body.
Good holding of handle. This teapot is very pretty gourd and maple motif with light color, they are in good harmony with body shape and color ( layer in color). Soukou’s teapots have elegance. This teapot gives quiet, natural impression.
