GREEN TEA IN THE REALM OF TRANQUILITY
KIGATA BANKO 木型萬古 - Japanese teapot for green tea, made with puzzled wooden mold.
In Japan, people barely know “Kigata Bankoyaki” is one of the rare technique to produce teapots using wooden molds discovered in my home town Yokkaichi.
We use thin pressed clay to wrap around this puzzled wooden mold. And we make the shape of a teapot. After the manufacturing process, only few people make this teapot in Yokkaichi.
