It is a cup of Yoshimasa Kimura, a writer of Kyoto ware and Kiyomizu ware.
Yoshimasa Kimura's works have a wide variety of glazes, but in fact he has studied glazes almost entirely on his own, which is why he has such a wide range and depth.
This work is a sake cup made of lapis lazuli glaze, which has a lustrous blue color that looks like a gem among the variations of glaze. The large shape allows you to fully enjoy the scent of sake, and the deep color of the smooth azure glaze creates a calm time.
This is an author's work that is highly appreciated not only by Japanese people, but also as a gift for overseas people due to the sake boom in recent years. We also have a sake bottle that uses the glaze of the same artist, so please consider it together.
Why don't you enjoy a moment of relaxation with Tenmoku glaze sake cups, which are gaining popularity around the world?
* Depending on the work, the appearance of the glaze pattern may differ slightly from the photo. note that.
