Zogan (incised white line) kyusu by Mizuno Hiroshi
A beautifully crafted flat kyusu with an incised white line around the rim. The fit fits with precision and the spout is minutely adjusted slightly inwards for maximum performance. The pearskin gives the impression of a grainy surface, but it is actually very nice and smooth to the touch.
Mizuno Hiroshi blends his own original clay in a process taking up to six months. He also pays special attention to producing the perfect ceramic filter, crafting each one individually to fit a particular teapot.
Hiroshi learned his craft from Yamada Jozan III, a National Living Treasure.
