Red & Smoke-Black Nanban Pear Japanese Kyusu Teapot, Yokei Mizuno Tokoname
Handmade. Thin body (rather light) and very detailed work and sophisticated shape.
The artist used 2 kind of soil, one is red clay, the other is bigger size of particles, which is shown in body and make the texture attractive.
No glazing. Make taste of tea round and richer, especially green tea.
Lid color is originally made as same as the body (red). Later it was smoked in black (fired 2nd time). Beautiful contrast of color. Natural soil color makes you feel quiet and calm.
Artist of the teapot is Yokei Mizuno, born in 1956, great teapot artist in Tokoname, Japan. Elegance and simplicity coexist in his works.
