Kutani Ware Kyusu (Japanese Teapot) with Gold and Silver CamelliaRegular price $66.28
This kyusu is made of Japanese Kutani ware.
A kyusu is a Japanese-style teapot.
There is a metal tea strainer inside.
It has a large camellia flower painted in gold and silver.
The surface is smooth and shiny, and the overall color is subdued, giving it a luxurious feel.
The surface appears to be cracked.
This is not a crack but a Kannyu (craze) and is not a quality problem.
This is a phenomenon in which the glaze hardens into a crack-like state due to the difference in the degree of shrinkage between the glaze and the base material.
Some potters intentionally incorporate Kannyu into their work.
This is recommended for those who already own a teacup.
We would like to combine a Japanese-style teapot with a Japanese-style teacup.
Create your original Japanese-style tea set by combining it with our teacups.
