This is a nested tea set produced by Shiko Tobo, a potter based in Shigaraki, an old pottery area near Kyoto and the oldest tea-producing region in Japan. The teapot, which has no handle and is called a "Shiboridashi kyusu", holds two sencha bowls. The tea utensil is a fusion of the traditional form and contemporary atmosphere of Shiko's unique technique, which is unique to Shiko, who has been producing mainly tea ceramics for three generations.
The clean shape and the off-white titanium glaze look will fit easily into any modern living space. The tea set fits compactly into a set of tea utensils, making it suitable not only for carrying around but also for everyday use. Why not brew a special cup of tea while traveling or on the go, or enjoy ”nodate” in nature?
We also have a matching "Yuzamashi" that can be stacked on top of the teapot.
