Shigaraki Tea Cup - Uchū
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 organic fluid like interior glaze resembles the cosmos, and the exterior has small textured marks – like scattered stars amid the night sky.
As every cup is handcrafted, each is unique and will differ slightly from piece to piece.
