Japanese Ironware Teapot
Known as tetsubin, cast-iron teapots have a long history in Japan – and are an essential part of a Japanese tea ceremony. This one was made under the watchful eye of a kamashi, a master craftsman with 30 to 40 years of experience in the art of metalwork; not for the faint of heart, this 60-plus-step process includes pouring molten iron into a clay mold. In a brilliant azure blue, this kettle features a subtle chrysanthemum design representing longevity and nobility – and the removable strainer makes great tea!
