Description
The classic, understated design and subdued color of this vessel complements its humble function. The shape of this kensui is called efugo, named after a similar container designed for feeding hawks. Though kensui are also crafted of ceramic or wood, the use of bronze is a reminder of the early preference for imported Chinese wares in tea practice.
