| Traditional Japanese tetsubin (iron teapots) were large vessels used centuries ago to heat water for tea and provide warmth and humidity in the home during the winter. Over time, smaller pots were crafted to allow for steeping tea rather than heating water. Most modern tetsubin fall into the size category for steeping, with a capacity of about 16 to 24 ounces. This tetsubin is a generous 42 ounces, which more closely approximates the size of pots which were used as heating vessels centuries ago. The rounded, offset square shape and the earthy brown finish give this pot an understated elegance and an antique appearance. Iwachu is one of the finest and most respected manufacturers of Japanese ironware, with a company history of over 100 years. Today, craftsmen at Iwachu pay respect to this tradition by infusing each product with skilled precision and detail throughout the entire manufacturing process. Much of the crafting process at Iwachu is still done by hand and strictly controlled by master craftsmen known as "Kamashi". At Iwachu, 15 years of apprenticehood is required to become a full-fledged craftsman and 30 to 40 years to become a "Kamashi". The superior quality, beauty and lasting durability of Iwachu products have earned them the worldwide reputation as the leading manufacturer of authentic Japanese tetsubin.
