An expertly crafted rustic tea cup from Yamagata Prefecture.

£51 per item

This tea cup is a tribute to the long-established Japanese pottery-making techniques of Hirashimizu Village, Yamagata Prefecture. Expertly crafted with local iron-rich clay, each cup is carefully formed and coated with a special glaze that blends tones of blue and copper-red. The surface is enhanced with red pine ash during the firing process, producing a stunning matt finish that further adds to its charm. The artisans who make these cups have a deep respect for the region’s pottery-making heritage, which dates back centuries. Each piece is made with a focus on craftsmanship rather than artistry, ensuring that it’s not only a beautiful addition to your tea set but also perfect for everyday use.

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