Hakuji Roppo-Oshi Yunomi (白磁六方押湯呑)
This is the Arita ware crafted by NAKAO, Jun (中尾純).
Jun shaped the cup round on a potter’s wheel.
He scraped the surface and put scoops in the six places with the finger while clay was still soft.
Pouring green tea, it looks really great against high-quality white clay.
This is a set of two cups (2 pcs).
Height : 8.6 cm
Diameter : 7.7 cm
He makes white porcelain after he learned from the maestro Manji Inoue in Arita ware. By creating a solid form, he's offering new ceramics that are relevant to today's life.
