A vision of sleek edges and metal


It is a powerful combination; the square shape gives a riveting first impression and the metal handle appends a sharp accent. Subtle contours on the square top contribute to the zest of the teapot. This is the one use for relaxing tea in the evening.


&nbsp Solid white meets modern style

Its surface gives off a delicate luster with a smooth touch. It is unusual for a Japanese teapot to be only white. Traditional Japanese teapots have some color, patterns, or drawing. However, daring to make it white with no decoration focuses attention on the radical new design of this teapot, and succeeded in creating a clear and sophisticated image.


&nbsp Contemporary design and reliable quality

The contemporary look was crafted by designers at Miyama. Miyama has been making high quality porcelains in Mino since 1977, and have a talent for creative design in white porcelain. This simple design will never go out of style and can be your standard of excellence.


&nbsp A tradition of quality

Produced in the Toki, Tajimi, Mizunami, and Kani regions of Gifu prefecture with a 1300-year history, Mino ware accounts for over 50 percent of Japanese ceramics now. As “the way of tea” gained popularity about 400 years ago, craftsmen in Mino began producing artistic tea utensils. Shino (white and textured), Kizeto (yellow ocher), Oribe (green pattern over light gray base) and Setoguro (black) are representative of these crafts. Now, 15 types of Mino ware are government-recognized traditional crafts of Japan. Nowadays, there are many manufacturers of Mino ware, with factories producing large numbers of these fine ceramics. A side variety of ceramics, including tableware, tiles, and tools are produced by inheriting the techniques of the past and being challenged to create new technologies for the future. Mino ware’s long history and high quality makes it a prime example of Japanese ceramics and an excellent addition to any collection.
