Shigaraki Sake Cup
Shigaraki is located in Koka City, Shiga Prefecture, and is recognised as playing a significant part in the long history of Japanese ceramics. It is included as one of Japan's six old kilns – being said to have a history of 1260 years. In 1976 Shigaraki-yaki (Shigaraki ware) was designated as a traditional craft in Japan.
Hechimon is a collection of Japanese ceramics by a third-generation Shigaraki-yaki maker, Marui Seito.
These petite Japanese cups are the perfect size to savour each sip. The unglazed exterior meets the hand with tactility. They can be used for sake, tea, or paired with the incense rings and circles as a base.
A mixture of muted tones from deep charcoal to grey and brown appear due to the kiln firing process. As every cup is handcrafted, each is unique and will differ slightly from piece to piece.
