Hagi Guinomi Kohiki (萩ぐい呑粉引)
This is a Hagi ware cup which Okada-san has created.
White colored clay slip was applied to the body after throwing the potter's wheel.
We call the pattern cherry blossoms "sakura" or fireflies by regarding them as the season, because mottled pink dots are seen.
The quality called "tsuchiaji" is soft, deep sense of touch like texture.
