Pattern: Some Nishiki Nabeshima Sarasamon, Dyed Colored Brocade Nabeshima Red Vein Enkianthus Motif
Hand-painted, bespoke porcelain houhin featuring ancient Japanese and Chinese design patterns often found on vintage kimonos, kimono belts, scrolls, and Kobukusa (chawan silk brocade cloths). Some of them are even considered "Meibutsu" or of a distinguished pattern from ancient Chinese nobility. The patterns often depict flowers, landscapes, whimsical characters, or mythical creatures from folklore. Each piece takes two months to complete due to the intricacy of the work and multiple firings since different colors have different temperatures.
This new style of houhin has been worked on for several years to accommodate ease of use, comfort, and overall serving size. It is the teapot of choice at 29b Teahouse for making delicate green teas from any country. The wide space allows for full Chinese leaves to expand and float, the threaded spout can even hold back the small broken leaves of Japanese sencha. Very easy to clean and porcelain is a neutral material and won't absorb taste so you can use it for many different teas.
