Striking teapot crafted by Fumihiro Toda in saitou technique. Pieces are dipped in a metallic glaze containing iron and manganese, wiped off moderately, and then covered with a non-glossy white glaze. The unevenness of the metallic glaze comes out through the white glaze, resulting in the striking antique look.
This unique and rustic teapot combines both functionality and beauty in its carefully considered form. The muted tones make it timeless and wonderful addition to the kitchen.
Dimensions: H: 13x W:19cm
