Handmade with expert craftsmanship in Hirashimizu Village, Yamagata Prefecture, this rustic porcelain sake bottle (tokkuri) is crafted using iron-rich soil found in the local area. During firing, red pine ash is added to the clay, producing a beautiful matt glaze that resembles the skin of a pear, with shades of blue and dull copper-red. The artisans behind this tokkuri have over 200 years of pottery-making heritage, and each bottle is crafted with a focus on craftsmanship rather than artistry, making it perfect for everyday use.

Due to the handmade nature of this item, each piece will differ slightly.
