Seihakuji Mentori Sen-bori Guinomi (青白磁面取線彫ぐい呑縦)
This is the Arita ware crafted by NAKAO, Jun (中尾純).
Jun made the cup on a potter’s wheel.
Shaving the surface had the sides faceted after dry.
And he added the engraved thin lines design.
The shadow looks quaint because blue and white porcelain glaze accumulated in the carved part.
That's something you can enjoy looking at it.
Height : 5.3 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.
