The teapot was fired twice, first in an oxidation chamber with the seaweed, and then in a lower temperature reduction chamber, where the clay carbonizes and gives the surface a matte brown patina.
The pattern on the surface is achieved with "Mogake technique" developed back in the 19th century. The pot was wrapped with Amamo seaweed, which reacts with the clay and oxidizes during firing. The result is this unique finish, bearing the impression of randomness, which has both aesthetic and philosophical appeal to the Japanese.
This kyusu is made with great precision, ensuring a beautiful flow without dribbling. Perfect for your daily Japanese green tea.
