Kasama-yaki Cup

Size: 70 x 100mm. Weight: 260g. Unlike most other firing methods, the kiln of artisan Masami Taniguchi smokes the cups, which leads to the amazing blueish and rough finish. Each cup is one of a kind because the outcome is unpredictable. Prime fired porcelain cups are imported from Hasami, and a few layers of a special glaze is applied on them. As his speciality, Masami Taniguchi fires the cups in a kiln that was formally used for roof tiles. Our Hasami cups are made in Hasami, Nagasaki, Japan.
