Teapot/New Rikyu Style[Edo pattern collection]
The traditional technique of pot making for famous tea ceremonies is combined with a new design to fit a modern lifestyle.
A cast iron teapot with a porcelain lid. This pairing is a classic combination in Japanese tea-making implements, or chadogu.
Chushin Kobo offers this modern incarnation under the name "New Rikyu style.”
There are 10 designs of the lid, five kinds are large - dragonfly, dragon, goldfish, wave and cloud, and five kinds are small - pine needles, bamboo grass, plum, cherry blossoms and maple.
You can choose according to the season and your desire.
The difference in materials offers a fresh esthetic take in this rare design.
The outside of the teapot revives the traditional Japanese sunahada textured surface, while the inside consists of corrosion-resistant porcelain. For ease of use, there is also a stainless steel tea strainer provided.
The iron teapot has a special feature, it maintains its warm heat so it takes a long time to become cold. Therefore it’s easy to make warm delicious tea. That is why I designed the teapot as an easy to use tool to fit with our modern lifestyle. There are two sizes, ‘0.7L’ and ‘1.4L’. Select the one that fits your situation and suits the number of people that will be drinking tea. I use a traditional sandy technique for the surface of the iron teapot and designed the shape of it to be like a tea jar that is used in traditional tea ceremonies. I use enamel on the inside to prevent rust. The spout is handmade to be especially thin so that it is easy to control the pouring and the usage of it.
