A teacup is crafted to express the clay material's excellence with a sleek silhouette, subtle translucence, and silky feel. Hand-thrown on the potter's wheel and polished in water, it delivers a luxurious yet robust tea experience. Noted for its rejuvenating azure shade, remarkable thinness, and considerable shrinkage ratio, Hanasaka clay necessitates a high technical skill. Thanks to the natural iron-richness, iconic "iron freckles" and "beauty marks" appear, adding to this cup's wabi-sabi aesthetic. Each cup is glazed on the inside to prevent it from absorbing each tea's flavor and maintain its neutrality.
Shipped in a white decorative box. Please note that some pieces will have black iron spots that occur naturally during firing from the mineral content of the clay. This item is designed for the enjoyment of very high-quality tea and is much smaller than it appears. Please check the capacity and dimensions below before purchasing.
