A cast metal teapot designed by Yukio Hashimoto, which elevates the spirit of the tea ceremony into modern form

A cast iron teapot in the Takaoka style by designer Yukio Hashimoto. It is made using the lost-wax casting method, which involves coating and hardening the outside of a wax cast with foundry sand, then melting the wax and removing it to produce a hollow object into which liquid metal is poured. A stylish and modern design which defies previous conceptions of a cast metal teapot. The surface coating comes in two designs: a unique organic-looking seaweed pattern, and a fine "ranko" pattern. The inside is coated with silicon, which is not only rust-resistant but also absorbs any iron particles. It can withstand direct heat, provided a weak enough level such as would keep hot water warm. You can also use it for holding liquor.
