work description

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.

Among the variations of the glaze, this work is a sake cup with the “Hekiyo” crest. It is a large-sized vessel that allows you to fully enjoy the aroma of sake, and is characterized by a beautiful pattern that mixes black and blue. Although it is powerful, it also gives a calm impression that feels calm like the bottom of the sea.

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.

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.
