All parts of the teapot, including the mouth, the cover, and the handle, are made by Mr. Tatsuo Umehara using hand-potter's-wheel. The teapot is unglazed, and it produces a soft black color, rather close to brown color, a color produced only by red stoneware. The tea incus traction coats the teapot through many uses, gradually turning the color unto a profound black. The side opposite to the mouth has a cut as to allows users to easily throw away the used tea leaves.
