Description:

A beautiful black teapot handcrafted by Takashi Endo, which is made with purion clay, using a reduction firing method. This results in achieving a stone like textured interior and exterior. The lightweight, modern teapot is completely unique, through Endo’s inspiring mark making. The symmetrical, round body of this vessel makes it comfortable to hold and pour, ensuring for a special tea brewing experience.

The monochromatic tones are distinct in Endo’s work, embracing the imperfection of the materials he uses. This exquisite piece is fully functional as well as being aesthetically pleasing, taking inspiration from architecture, music and Japanese culture.

As all products are handmade, sizes and colour may vary slightly.
