Teapot (Grey Hakeme)


A handmade, glazed pottery teapot handmade by Noritada Kimura, a great Kyoto potter.

As a Kyoto potter Noritada has a freedom to make ceramics in many different styles, and this is his take on the Korean-style Hakeme glaze, sometimes called ‘brushstroke’ after the method of applying the glaze. The primary glaze is charcoal-grey with a creamy white slip glaze applied in thick swirls on the outside of the pot, with a nice speckled effect underneath that gives the impression of powder or snow.

As functional as they are beautiful, these are some of the best teapots we have come across in 25 years of working in Japan.

Dimensions:  14cm height x 10.5cm diameter. 19cm spout to handle  Volume: ~750mls

(N.B. If you are interested in cups in the same glaze then please check with us for availability)
