Shigaraki Tea Cup - Ochre
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 Japanese teas cups are the perfect size to savour each sip. The muted ochre coloured glaze includes a small brush detail – a mark of made by the potters hand.
As every cup is handcrafted, each is unique and will differ slightly from piece to piece.
