Good thing about this teapot is that it combines the style I like and a very good glaze with a nice effect on tea. After Shimizu Ken and Tachi Masaki's teapots, I wouldn't have been able to just use only a "pretty" teapot. It has to deliver.
I think my next step will be to try a reduction-fired kyusu from Yamada So, but I'll have to wait for the right item as these babies are expensive... Akira has also been working on a new clay. I'll see which one comes first.
I may have to buy a Yamada Sou pot at some point....don't think I can hold back forever.
