okoname Sou Yamada Black Wood Firing Teapot 山田想 YS70
The teapot underwent a firing process enveloped by shells, resulting in a distinctive shell pattern adorning its surface. The original reddish-brown hue of the teapot's clay is transformed by the presence of shells and ash, giving black and glossy black tones.
Distinguished by a particularly alluring yellowish to dark yellow ash, the teapot boasts a textured body. Within its form, a myriad of captivating colors and nuanced gradations—ranging from black to brown and moss green—intermingle. Some areas gleam with a luminous sheen, while others showcase a rugged texture, each emanating from a distinct source.
Every facet of the teapot's body carries its own unique flavor. Notably, the thin and lightweight composition adds to its overall charm.
Sou Yamada is a grandson of Jozan Yamada the 3rd, who was recognized by the Japanese government as Important Intangible Cultural Property.
The Yamada families have been producing teapots in 5 generations. The style is authentic. This teapot’s lid and handle shows Yamada family’s nobleness.
