Buying from www.tokoname.or.jp

by rainmanne » Sep 19th 17 10:00 am

Has anyone got any experience buying from www.tokoname.or.jp? I can see people posting links to teapots from this site but I cannot find a way around the site itself. It's a bit confusing.

here is the full URL
http://www.tokoname.or.jp/teapot/

the basic catalog is here
http://www.tokoname.or.jp/teapot/yubi2017-Ka.pdf

but the higher end pieces (imo the stuff worth looking at) is here
http://www.tokoname.or.jp/teapot/gallery.htm

here are the ordering instructions
http://www.tokoname.or.jp/teapot/order.htm

basically you have to email him with what you want, he'll give you a quote, and then you can pay by paypal if you want.
his address is ceramics@japan-net.ne.jp

note that he very infrequently updates his site, so if there's something you're interested in, you should still email him even if you don't see it on there.

also he has an ebay store that you can look at

good luck

I think I only ordered from them once, but followed the instructions as found on the site & detailed above, and while I did give away one pot, becuase I had not really understood how large it would be, I still regularly use and love the kyusu I described in this post.

Just bought my dream Konishi Yohei teapot from the site. Can't wait.

Like Pedant said above, the Gallery section has the higher end stuff. However, it doesn't have everything they are offering. The link below has all the master potters:
