Tsuki Teapot

We named this beautiful teapot Tsuki, meaning “moon” in Japanese, because of its round shape and iridescent quality. Its crème color reveals brown specks that naturally form during the firing process, making each teapot completely unique. Inspired by master Tokoname artist Yamadera-san, this light teapot made of natural clay and natural ash glaze is functional with all teas. The Obi Ami (stainless steel mesh screen) covers the inside wall of the teapot, filtering out very small tealeaves and herb particles, while the teapot’s specially molded spout makes for easing pouring.

Diameter 3.44"
Height 2.63" (not including lid)
Aprox.11.8oz. by volume
