Coffee pot for cold winter day

New York has been in 20's these days... We have stayed in all weekend. This looks like a perfect winter coffee pot for days like these.

Kodo Kiyooka works in Shigaraki city, Shiga, that has been famous for pottery making since ancient times. This particular pot uses Sabiyu(錆釉) glaze based on straw ash. His Sabiyu pieces will be polished after uses, and become even more beautiful over time.
