Handmade Teapot in #187 Blue
4.75" x 3.5" x 4.5" / 10 oz
#187 is the number of the blue glaze, which was perfected from trying and adjusting constantly. The grayish blue color tone with low luster is simple, yet rich in expression at the same time. The soft, upright shape contrasts beautifully with the straight handle, and the details such as the knob, tea strainer, and spout are carefully crafted, making it a product that can be enjoyed both in use and as a decoration. This teapot is suitable for Japanese tea, black tea, and oolong tea.
