Yixing Teapots History
Yixing ware elevates something as simple as a teapot or cup into a work of art accessible to all collectors. Its history is rich and vigorous, offering something for just about everyone interested in pottery, tea, or Chinese culture.
This glazed teapot is called 'Yokode no kyusu' which translates literally as 'side handle teapot' and this kind was used traditionally for serving green tea. The side handle derives from old times, when the host was sitting in front of the guest while pouring tea. This handle is very useful for quick and even distribution among several small cups without spillage. For non-Asian eyes this teapot might look somehow unorthodox at first, but its practical features are undeniable and persuasive.
