Shun-en II Plum Blossom - 250 ml

  

Masterpiece by Mr. Mano Shun-en II, born in 1950 in Tokoname city, father is Shun-en I.

Beautiful teapot with hand engraving of plum blossoms, creates a nice contrast with the smooth surface of the teapot. 

This is a complete work of one person, preparing the design, researching and preparing the clay, also the subsequent engraving. There are not many potters who master all these crafts.

Truly a masterpiece for a collection, let's say an investment piece. Packed in a wooden box.

It is the current absolute pinnacle of Japanese tea ceramics. There is no other potter who creates such detailed teapots. He is also the only one to create double-walled teapots, which he has worked on for many years, creating his own clays and going through a lengthy process of firing tests, experiencing many setbacks before he achieved the desired results. He is one of the few who is not only a ceramist but also the author of the engravings on his teapots.
