up for sale is a small, beautiful yakishime kyusu by master Hokujo.

Image

volume: 130mL
weight: 75g
filter: 'direct' multi-hole (doake)
lid fit: perfect



i am selling it only because i have replaced it with a nanban-style pot by the same artist. really, i think this is a very nice pot and would ordinarily not want to get rid of it. it's well proportioned with beautiful contrasty clay and lines. this is a lightweight and delicate pot. its thin walls (only 75g!) are a testament to Hokujo's skill. the size is perfect imo for one or two person brewing. pots in this size range by this artist can be hard to come by.

it has seen light use with sencha, gyokuro, and taiwanese high-mountain green oolong.
i have modified the filter by adding additional holes to improve pour. it pours well now. i've described these modifications here (there is a video of the pour at the end): viewtopic.php?f=20&t=329

$180 including shipping in USA. i can ship worldwide, but there may be an extra shipping charge.

thanks for looking!
