New in the Shop – Iron Teapots Handmade by IWACHU

Although I try not to make a distinction between new and old, it’s exciting to see those workshops that have stood the test of time and continue to use artisanal skills to produce beautiful objects that have become staples.

In Morioka, Japan resides IWACHU, a family run workshop who have been producing ironware for more than 100 years. Their speciality is the production of cast iron teapots, using over 60 processes to produce the final object.

The patterns on the surface of the pots reference different parts of nature, and we are pleased to showcase a selection of their teapots in our shop. Just pour hot water over the green tea in the tea strainer and let the tea brew for that perfect cup of tea.
