Yagi Teapot

| /

This dobin-style teapot, with an animal form and a bamboo handle has a smooth and precise pour.

The earthenware teapot with a goat motif has a stable oval shape. Kiln-altered glaze is hand-applied to red clay, and bamboo is used for the handle. Because of this, one can expect variation from piece to piece. The texture of the material is strongly felt in this item. The face of the animal spout has a unique expression as if it is about to start moving. "Since ancient times, many vessels shaped like animals have been crafted. Drawing inspiration from these, we devised a method for attaching the handle using the elastic properties of bamboo, while carefully considering the functionality required for tea utensils. I hope you will not only use it as a tea ware but also as a pouring vessel for sake and soup stock." - Makoto Komatsu
