A refined Japanese teacup with paper thin walls and exceptional detailing.
The outside of the teacup remains unglazed and is decorated with a simple bamboo shoot pattern which continues onto the base and is picked up when held to the light. The design takes strong influence from the traditional Shoji paper screens of Japan and shares the same understated beauty.
This cup comes in two sizes, small and medium.
Size small: φ 70 × height 70 mm (200 ml capacity)
Size medium: φ 80 × height 80 mm (270 ml capacity)

Hagi Yaki originated as pottery produced at the Hagi Domain Kiln. A pottery that has a rich history of over 400 years. Now Hagi is an association of ceramic artisans producing beautiful hand made tea ware using traditional techniques. Each Hagi Yaki item goes through a 14 step process, including high temperature firing which changes the colour of the pottery.
These cups are made by ceramic artist Hironobu Ogawa. He uses traditional Hagi techniques with a new approach, by crafting the cups from Hagi red soil and adapting the traditional white glaze to give the cups a bubbling quality. The results are said to be patterns that resemble white lava formations on red soil.
