IWACHU Nanbu Cast Iron Tea Cup Coasters – New Series Mari Blue – Made in Japan

$ 49.00

If you have a Nanbu-Tekki teapot, Nanbu-Tekki cup coasters will further enrich your tea experience at home. Nanbu-Tekki developed some 900 years ago, originating in Morioka City and Mizusawa, Oshu City, in Iwate Prefecture. Each piece is handmade by skilled craftsman using traditional techniques and materials that are sourced from local areas.

Nanbu Tekki requires a process of 64 to 68 different steps to completion. To become an ironware maker, one must go through 15 years of apprenticeship, and the title of master craftsman requires another 40 years of practice.

Nanbu-Tekki is not only beautiful but also highly durable – it’s said to last 100 years. If a piece breaks, you can have it repaired or remade into another object. Nanbu-Tekki can thus be a family treasure that can be passed down from generation to generation.
