About Kurokinsai �i�•‹à�ʁj

"Black and gold" or "kurokinsai" is a traditional Japanese decorative technique used predominantly in pottery and ceramics.

This kurokinsai, created by the up-and-coming craftsman, Junzo, is not overly flashy. Rather, it beautifully features a dull gleaming gold contrasted with a matte black. The inside of the teapot is left unglazed.

We store our inventory in two locations: Japan and the United States. This is because we currently have a large customer base in America. In the future, we plan to expand our distribution centers to other countries. For details on shipping methods and delivery charges, please click here.

We strive to deliver our products to our customers as quickly and affordably as possible by stocking them in both Japan and the United States wherever feasible. However, some of our teaware, especially those with limited stock or high popularity among customers worldwide, are only stocked in Japan.
