Yunomi (Golden Tea 2)


A pottery yunomi handmade by Noritada Kimura, a great Kyoto potter.

As a Kyoto potter Noritada has a freedom to make ceramics in many different styles, and this is his take on the famous Hagi-yaki which originates in Hagi in Yamaguchi prefecture using a kohiki-style technique. This beautiful new yunomi is very similar in colour to his usual Hagi cup but completely different, with a smooth texture, no inclusions and no slip glaze. Instead it is thin and refined, with little bubbles on the surface and a glaze that is reflective in a similar way to some tenmoku and tea dust cups.

Dimension: 8cm height x 8cm diameter. Volume: ~230mls
