SOUKOU BLACK UNGLAZED HOUHIN Teapot 宗弘宝瓶
Beautiful, stylish and delicate.
SOUKOU was teapot master in Tokoname, he is retired and no longer making teapot.
This Houhin proves his high technique. Prefect shape, iron-like texture, every parts of teapot are very harmonious and detailed. Lid knob, spout, small handle looks unique and stylish. Strainer/Filter has handmade hole.
A bit of sandy clay makes it feel like wabi or aged (it is not used). In total, it is so tasteful. Good for collection, too.
Lid is perfect fit. Good water flow.
Body is rather thin, good for green tea brewing.
