Tsunehisa Gunji Teapot A
Small kyusu teapot perfect for Japanese tea by a local Mashiko potter Tsunehisa Gunji. This one-of-a-kind teapot is from Tsunehisa's special wood fired series that has its unique and beautiful texture. Tsunehisa's teapots are not only beautifully presented, they are perfectly functional and you can enjoy the beauty of its functionality. The teapot will age nicely as you use it (kan-nyu).
Tsunehisa Gunji is one of the most renowned artists and ceramicists in our local Mashiko - a small craft and pottery town 100km north of Tokyo - who works individually as well as together with his wife Keiko producing ceramic works for everyday and simple pleasure in their beautiful studio filled with aesthetic and surrounded with nature.
We visit Gunji's studio and pick up all the pieces ourselves (sometimes they would drop them in) in person. We are thrilled to be introducing Keiko and Tsunehisa's work to the world through UGUISU.
Not recommended for use in dishwasher or microwave.
