Group Description

This is a list to share and learn information about TETSUBIN, the beautiful cast-iron kettles of Japan.

A tetsubin is a teapot-shaped, cast-iron water kettle. It always has a spout, a lid, and a handle that arches over the lid (and which can be bent downwards for storage). Tetsubin are generally small, but large-capacity tetsubin also exist. Even the simplest tetsubin is a thing of beauty, while the best are true works of art.

Interested in discussing how to care for and maintain your tetsubin? Curious about the traditional motifs that appear on these items? Want to share any tips on how to collect or display them? Would you like to discuss any related subjects (for example, green tea, Japanese ironware in general, Chado - the way of tea)? Please join in!
