Pre-treatment of teapots

A lot has been written about pre-treating teapots before use. This is usually done to firm the clay and strengthen ceramic items, particularly those made from molds. The Tokoname teapots shown on this webpage have been thrown on a potter's wheel (unless otherwise stated.)and are therefore already firm enough. Pre-treatment is not necessary.

Simply rinse the pot with warm water before use.
