In a beautiful dispersed settlement, Tonami, Toyama in Japan, 83Design designed “Kyusu”, Japanese Tea Pot, and “Yunomi”, Japanese Tea Cup, with the local pottery, Sansuke-yaki, which has a history of 150 years. Bernard Leach, one of the most prominent British potters, also appreciated the quality of the pottery.
The subtle and rich colour is made by the traditional technique using only the clay and glaze produced by the localnature. Teapots of Sansuke-yaki traditionally have no handle and it produces the characteristic shape as well as it makes it easier to store.
This design follows the tradition.
While the design is inspired by the history of the pottery and the color, it is still modern and casual. In your busy life, a cup of tea with Kyusu and Yunomi will give you a nice and quiet time to relax.
