28,000 yen ($246.50 USD)

Hisao Iwashimizu is that rare craftsman whose skill in his chosen craft is matched by an equally keen sense of design. He creates works in the traditional Japanese craft of nambu tetsu that are understated and minimalist in form, while having rich textures and exquisite curves.

Tetsubin ( Iron Kettles ) do require some extra effort to use and maintain but they can be appreciated not only for their beauty. Iron kettles have excellent heat distribution and retention properties. The iron from the pot released in the water can be appreciated as a dietary source of iron as well as improving the flavour of the water. With proper care an iron kettle will last 100 years.
