Thie tea pot has been worked with "Tochiri" method. The potter put the tea pot on the wheel and carve patterns in the clay. It demands time and a great dexterity to the artisan.

The second technique applied to realize this tea pot is named "Kokudei", which describes its dark color. This shade is achieved with a specific firing with rice husks (for example). In the fire, husks will leave a carbon layer on the tea pot surface.
The Tokoname red clay can also darken and blacken with "reduction" : it is when there is a reduction of the oxygen rate in the kiln. In such conditions, oxidation process makes iron oxide reacting and changing color and texture.
