Design label Lucy Alter introduced the new 'Kyusu' teapot that draws its name and inspiration from the original "kyusu model" originally designed in 1756, which was when the use of teapots in Japan grew more prominent. It is an individual teapot and centers around the idea of making the process simplistic, yet transparent. The piece is literally translucent, which allows the process of opening tea leaves and color changes to be visible.
The construction uses a special process that features a molding technique completed to ensure no burrs, gate marks or any parting lines. It is meant to imitate the look of glass, whilst fusing elements that are insulated and resistant to breakage. Unlike most teapots, the design does not feature a handle, so it can be stacked to save space when it is being stored away.
