Handmade by Daisuke Nagano in Kochi, Japan
Teapot and mugs hand-thrown in stoneware. Sold individually.
Nagano cut his own firewood and used it to fuel the Anagama kiln he built. The teapot is matte and rough in texture, coming in a medium size with a comfortable handle. The mugs are in ash glaze mixed with ash of burned rice straw, a byproduct of his family’s farm, as well as the burned foliage from pomelo and pear trees, Kochi specialties grown by relatives and acquaintances. The pots with these glazes resemble the earth in color and texture. The final colour changes depending on the thickness of glaze, the type of plant he burned, and the way he fires the pots.
