Handmade Tokoname teapot made by Jin Tanikawa.

This Honshudei teapot is made of Tokoname Tazuchi – literally meaning rice fields (ta)' soil (tsuchi). The "honshudei" clay, is getting extremely rare and sought for these days. During the urbanization of Tokoname, like in the case of many other cities, the new living areas were built on parcels previously used as rice fields. During that time, clay was gathered from under those rice fields, and Tanikawa Jin bought a larger amount of it. Up to these days, he uses this approximately 50 years old clay for his honshudei ceramics.

The Honshudei clay has a yellowish-brown color, that turns red during firing thanks to its high iron content. In continual use, the surface will gradually become smoother and shinier.

In Tokonama, now many potters use electric kilns, but Tanikawa Jin still uses gas kilns, constantly keeping an eye on the fire and temperature, to achieve the best results. The firing process takes about 30 hours.

Place of origin: Tokoname, Japan

Handling precautions

Initiation:
Before first use, rinse it in hot water then let it dry completely!

Usage:
Avoid placing in a place with high temperatures,​ such as a microwave, oven, or stove.

Cleaning:
Tokoname teapots become glossy as you use them. Oil impurities may become mixed in,​ but if you wash it the glossiness will remain.
Wash with dishwashing detergent should the surface become blackish. Its beautiful gloss will remain. Do not use dishwasher or dryer!
In case of discoloration, do not use any kind of bleach!

Storage:
After use, always let it dry completely, for if stored while still wet, it might develop a damp smell or mold.

Non-glazed ceramic tea pots absorb whatever we put in them, so always only prepare one kind of tea in them (green tea, black tea, roasted tea, etc).
