Teapot artist at Tokname

I am looking for a white hohin (small teapot for gyokuro) for my store. I visited to a teapot artist at Tokomame this weekend, who is one of certified traditional craftsmen of Tokoname ware. He produces red, black, gray, and white teapots. I believe not many artists make white teapot at Tokoname. He showed me how to make a teapot. It was amazing. The clay transformed intriguingly like a living creature. I asked him a sample hohin with my original design. I’m really looking forward to it.

Take care!
