Hokuryu has created a lovely, low-sided teapot with a wide opening that is perfect for large hands to add or remove tea leaf or for steeping large-leaf oolongs.
The classic black finish has a high shine. The lid is comprised of small cuts that create a rhythm, and simple, vertical hand-drawn lines break the background pattern of finely chiseled cuts on the body of the teapot. Both design elements are the only embellishment given. The knob, handle and teapot spout are smooth and plain.
This teapot is pure and simple and a bit old-style Japanese in feeling.
This is a handmade item – slight variations in the painting, colors, tooling, patterning and kiln effects of Chinese and Japanese tea wares are to be expected. We have carefully photographed this item as best as possible – please be aware that different device screens can render colors and subtle tones slightly differently.
