KYU TOKONAME PERSIMMON
Tokoname-yaki is one of the six ancient kiln areas of Japan and is most famous for kyusu side handled tea pots which have been produced since the Muromachi period (1338-1573).
Tokoname clay is high in iron content and the firing process produces a red-orange color known as shudei. It is also very fine and allows for unusual and intricate designs to be carved into each kyusu.
This handmade persimmon design utilizes two colors of clay and slight imperfections are to be expected.
