A serpentine spout and hand-woven vine handle are given visual precedence in this teapot design by Tetsuya Kowari, elevating the language of function to a work of art.
The deep-seated lid created to stay secure when tea is poured is a further indication of Kowari’s signature harmonious fusion of utilitarian and fine art ceramics. Perfect size for a tea between two, or for the collector with an appreciation of the art of teapots.
Nb. these are hand made pieces and measurements are approximate.

Tetsuya Kowari produces extraordinary vessels that seem almost too sculptural to use but are in fact are all highly functional. These are pieces designed for daily use, or simply for daily contemplation of their incredible aesthetic.
Kowari creates his pieces in a wood fired anagama kiln in Fujinomiya, Shizuoka Prefecture, and the DEA Store is the official stockist of Tetsuya Kowari work in Australia.
