Asahiyaki Tea Mug (Oak Ash)


A wood fired tea mug made by Asahiyaki, a 16th generation kiln in Uji near Kyoto.

This handled mug is made with a oak ash glaze, which colours it off white with a lovely crackled effect that will deepen with use. The turning marks can be seen in concentric circles around the body, and the small handle means it can be used to hold teas brewed with boiling water.

Each cup is slightly different in hue depending on its position in the kiln, so please contact us if you would like further pictures.

Volume ~ 230ml  Dimensions: 9cm (height) x 8cm (diameter)
