Otagaki Rengetsu | Kettle

SKU: R1752



She crafted a variety of ceramic utensils for the tea ceremony. From Chawan (tea bowls), to Mizusashi (for fresh water), and from Chaire (tea containers) to Kensui (for waste water).

But for some reason one particular utensil is very hard to find. Rengetsu hardly ever made a kama, a kettle, like the one you see here. 


The world's dust
swept aside
here in my hermitage
I have all I need —
the wind in the pines.
