Nambu Tekki Cast Iron Teapot – Makoto Koizumi


Only 1 left in stock (can be backordered)

Nambutekki cast ironworks in Iwate Prefecture are well known for their traditional craftsmanship. In recent years iron kettles and tea sets made using traditional techniques have become popular, and practical cookware items made using new techniques are also being made. The technique of “kanake dome”, in which an oxide layer is formed on the inside of an iron kettle preventing rust, originates from Nanbu Tekki.

This Good Design Award winner kettle has been fired to allow oxidation of the surface of the iron, thus creating a film layer with anti-rust effects.

Design specifications:

Designer: Makoto Koizumi

Thickness: As the cast iron is shaped by pouring melted iron into a sand mold, it has a thickness of around 4mm.

Easy to use walnut wood lid: By making the lid wooden, it feels gentle to the touch and reduces the overall weight of the teapot. Do not apply an open flame to the teapot as the wood will be damaged.

Pours well: The design of the spout tip makes for excellent pouring – an essential function of a teapot.

Full Capacity approx. 0.55L
