Shudei Nanban teapot by Hokujo #3

This is a high end item by Master Hokujo.
The teapot is created using a great deal of skill on a potter's wheel. The rough surface is created by pushing the teapot body from the inside, resulting in such rugged finish. There are minute firing cracks around the attachment of the spout and the handle. They are firm and will not develop further.

Handmade by Hokujo, recognized as a Tokoname City Human Cultural Asset, Master craftsman recognized by the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry of Japan and recipient of numerous prestigious prizes.
