Brand new. Hand made, Hand carving, No glazing. Amazing collaborations of two teapot masters in Tokoname. Fugetsu’s traditional and pretty shaped teapot with Kodo’s exquisite carving. White plum flowers emphasize beauty of red clay. Horizontal lines that are made on body, handle and lid make sharp and fresh impression. An appreciation of the carving with letters will bring you a joy and it will touch your heart. We believe Kodo’s carving techniques and art on teapots is the best in Japan.
