Madara Karatsu Tebineri Mug (斑唐津手びねりマグカップ)
This is the Karatsu ware crafted by FUJINOKI, Yotaro (藤ノ木陽太郎).
The warm color fascinates us, though hand-forming takes a lot of time than he throws in the potter's wheel.
We call it "madara" because blue and black spots are appeared due to melting the iron and the pine ashes when it's baked.
The fired color is also beautiful at the part of the foot.
The capacity for liquids is 200ml.
