Shirahana Houhin Flat Teapot

 

A distinctive flat Houhin teapot that gives a wonderful grip and pouring movement for the brewing of Gyokuro and high-quality Sencha. 

This Shirahana ware is known to be specific to the Japanese potter Hitoshi Morimoto. The neutral tone is achieved by his method of firing it in Kerosene kiln, which is differentiated to his other bizen ware that goes into Noborigama (climbing kiln). The result of his works are defined by the firing, the part that he enjoys the most throughout the whole process of making. It is suitable for one cup or can serve two small cups to share between two people.

Hitoshi Morimoto remarks on how the early experiences of the environment where life and production are closely connected offered him a solid foundation to become a potter. The clay he works with is native to the region of Okayama, as well as pine ash and glaze. Most significantly he emphasises that his work is inseparable from tea and everything else related to it in his daily life. 

Unglazed stoneware and textured surface.

Origin: Okayama prefecture, Japan
Care instructions: Wash gently by hand
Dimensions: D 105 mm, H 60 mm, vol 75ml
£200.00
