Made in Tokoname City, the home of one of the Six Old Kiln sites in Japan. This particular teapot is made at the kiln Isobe, founded in 1900 by Yasumasa Watanabe. A modern take on the traditional yokode no kyusu (side handle tea pot), this angular teapot uses a clay called Shiro Goma (white sesame) and no glaze. Each teapot is made of five individual parts; the body, spout, handle, lid, and strainer.
