CAST IRON OF THE WAZUKU FOUNDRY
Pure and modern, the lines of WAZUQU's teapots are superb.
Heirs of an ancestral know-how, the workers-craftsmen take particular care in enameling and patina of all models. All these teapots are equipped with a filter.
A few words about WAZUKU...
"Kikuchi Hojudo", the foundry that manufactures WAZUQU products, was founded in 1604 by Kiheiji Kikuchi under the patronage of the Lord of Yamagata, Yoshiaki Mogami. Handed down through generations, its current master is the 15th. These cast iron teapots were chosen as gifts for the Japanese Emperors of the Meji, Taisho an Showa eras. WAZUQU products are appreciated by connoisseurs, used in starred hotels and restaurants as well as by tea lovers all over the world.
These products have won numerous awards, since the Grand Prize at the Philadelphia International
Exhibition in 1926, the Special Prize of the Good Design Award... Today, WAZUQU cast iron teapots are the only ones selected under the COOL JAPAN brand, organized by the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry (MITE).
