Iron Kettle

A Nanbu *tekki* iron kettle, perfect for making tea in. Iwate has a centuries-long tradition of ironware production. The iron is molten at more than 1,500 degrees Celsius, the casts are made entirely of recycled materials, and everything important is done the same way it's been done for hundreds of years. Iwachu's Nanbu *tekki* (Nanbu ironware) is known for its application of this tradition to contemporary needs. The most common traditional forms of Nanbu *tekki* are kettles, teapots and other similar products. They have been used in tea ceremonies for centuries. Also note the beautifully intricate pattern on the surface of the kettle—patterns like this are an important part of the Nanbu *tekki* tradition.
