Zero Japan was established by Koji Inoue in 1992. Before that he worked for a major Japanese porcelain manufacturer where he could not develop his creativity. The original name of his own company was Beehouse which was changed in October 2006 into Zero Japan.
The glaze of the Zero Japan teapots is strong and smooth. The pots have been completely glazed, except for the Japanese style kikko crackle. In this style the bottom part of the pot or cup is left unglazed
All the pots and cups are made of stoneware, which is baked at a much higher temperature and which is much stronger than earthenware.
All items are dishwasherproof Except for thosewith a crackle glaze.
