KOTATSU - Japanese Yunomi Tea Cup, Cylindrical

Size: Approx. 2.88" Diameter, 3.25" H

Dai's Irabo glaze ceramics capture the Japanese admiration for the imperfect and the withered. Entirely handmade in Takayama, Japan, these pieces age beautifully with use, as their texture smoothens and colors deepen.

Dai believes that the beauty of Japanese pottery comes from its "harmony with nature". In keeping with this philosophy, Dai does not compromise when it comes to selecting his ingredients, whether it be clay from a particular hill 20km away or ash that is produced naturally and locally. He also shuns all tools of mass production, even opting for the mechanically-operated wheel over its electronic counterpart.

A tall, cylindrical-shaped Japanese yunomi tea cup. "Kotatsu" is a Japanese heated table covered by a futon blanket, which often becomes the center of family life during the cold winters in Japan. Somehow this tea cup seems like it belongs atop a kotatsu - filled with some freshly made green tea, and steam rising from it like a chimney.
