Seiho’s teapots are quite in demand for their color, impressed floral patterning and the use of gold and white color. They are charming in all aspects of shape and design. Seiho tries to make each teapot unique and imagines a story for each one as he applies his stamp-generated images to it.
The body of this teapot is river-stone grey/green in color. It is unglazed, which adds an appealing appearance and feeling to the teapot. Seiho impresses flower designs onto the damp clay using small, hand-carved wooden stamps with which he can control the depth of the impressions. The flowers and other design elements are carefully painted before the teapots are fired.
This teapot features a lush spray of tiny flowers in full bloom as well as loose blossoms scattered here and there by the wind, which is depicted as a ‘z’ shaped design that exudes movement and change.
Seihio’s style is unique and his teapots are a pleasant addition to a spring and summer tea table.
