Sayunomi Sayunomi

This teapot and a cup were designed in conjunction with the opening of the Xinjin Zhi Museum in Chengdu, China. In Japan, we occasionally enjoy plain, hot water without tea leaves. This is called "sayu". Served prior to a formal meal in a traditional style like the multi-course kaiseki ryori, sayu makes us feel physically, mentally and spiritually purified and rejuvenated. To celebrate the opening of the museum, we created a set of utensils that allows for this purifying aspect of sayu. Of course, the pot can also be used to make tea. Designed to be held swathed in a cloth, it has no handle.

This product was put on display at the exhibition "Ginza Mekiki Hyakkagai 3" in 2014.
