I received this wonderful teapot by Hakusan Katayama III. last month. The purpose of Hakusan´s donation been my works for the new "Handcrafted Japanese Teapots" - Calender 2014. He uses the "horizontal lines" technique and "changed kiln". Thanks to Takeyoshi Kojima for making this possible.
Hakusan studied pottery art under his father, Tadayoshi Katayama. He is a member of Japan Sencha Crafts Association and Tokoname Hand-made Teapot Assocociation. Hakusan is mostly using the mogake style and by changing the temperature, his teapots have wonderful, warm tones and muted green colors.
