It is a sake 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 literally a kiln change, and it is a vessel that enjoys the random patterns created by the flames when baking the vessel . The large shape allows you to fully enjoy the scent of sake, and the unique pattern that never appears the same will make you feel special. Since ancient times, Japanese people have tried and errored this kiln transformation, so it gives the impression that the soil is full of vitality and gives the user energy.
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.
