In remembrance of Toju (1932-2022), here is a picture of my favorite kyusu. May he rest in peace.

I really love his pots, I tried to capture all the cool details in that photo. Hoped it wasn't too big.

It would be great to see a few of his pots here. Toju was definitely a great artisan.
It's hard to choose just one, but this kyusu was the first Japanese piece I purchased and the details on it are great.
Many people appear to have his work so at least he will live on for a long time.

It is a delight to the eye (metal and wood textures, rivets and bark and rings)

I think I've figured out the connecting thread that ties all your pots together - they all have very proud spouts.
