Yakishime Budhist temple bell shaped teapot by Touju

This is a remakable piece in that the craftsman has succeeded in turning a ceramic teapot into a resemblance of a cast -iron temple bell. The details are so realistic that the lightness of the pot comes as a pleasant surprise. Originally designed as one of Touju's high-end pieces, this model comes with a simpler knob on the lid, giving it a more accessible price.
Built-in handcrafted ceramic mesh filter.
