I do rather wish they'd make a pot one day with a handle on the other side for left-handed folks. I always pour my Japanese tea out away from me into the cup, heh.


Some of Toru's Tokoname listings have left handed versions that are also in stock but you won't see them unless you open the web page for that specific product. He also usually has some left handed kyusu in the Bizen section. And as someone already mentioned, there is a good selection of lefty kyusu on the Tokoname site.

Artistic Nippon Hokujo kyusu with left handed versions available:

I find myself really liking the style too. I wasnt sure when i saw pics of them online but the price i got 3 of these for there was NO way to pass them up. I dont believe they knew what they had. The description was "3 personal teapots appears to be made of painted or opaque glass."
uh huh...painted glass.... :lol:

Although it's hard to believe clay and glass can be mistaken for each other, I think there is some resemblance between the nerikomi style and some art-deco glass. I mean in looks or art style, not material.

BTW that is a very nice kyusu!

Indeed, the highly reflective material looks very tricky to light.

Gorgeous shimmery effects, though.
