Iwachu tea pot

You know that I love tea – and beautiful things – and today, surfing the internets, I found this japanese tea pot –

NEW-Iwachu-Japanese-Iron-Teapot-Tetsubin-Gold-and-Purple-Goldfish

“Tetsubin” in japanese. It is by manufacturer Iwachu – the information I found is that they have been producing modern ironware for more than 100 years and that making a tetsubin at their workshops consists of 64~68 steps, with most of the process still being done by hand. I found some beautiful Iwachi pots here (over at ebay), but you can spot them in more local internet shops, too. Only problem with them is that they are so damn heavy! (I once managed to get a twisted neck/shoulder only by lifting a full tetsubin from the table – but then I always manage to get neck twisted, could be just by THINKING too hard sometimes, so, ouch, it’s maybe just me).
