Shigaraki Tea Cup II
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 handcrafted Japanese teas cups are the perfect size to savour each sip. The organic fluid like poured glaze can be found on both the inside and outside of the cup, creating a beautiful contrast between the raw dark clay and the off-white patterned glaze.
As every cup is handcrafted, each is unique and will differ slightly from piece to piece.
