Adorable fat rounded body

This teapot has a classic fat rounded body, but without all the superfluous lines and has streamlined into a modern look. Even the adorable spout, which is the only break in the curves of the teapot is minimalized in a sleek design. It works well as a daily teapot with its charming appearance. Accompany your breakfast with this pot to accent your morning, or bring it to teatime with your friends and share the charm.

&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.
