Mug size Diameter about 9.5 cm Height about 12.5 cm Capacity about 250㏄ The legs are a powdered mug with a motif of flames rising from the ground, a gentle and loose handle, and a unique presence. A technique called powdering A work made of red soil containing a lot of iron is covered with white clay slurry. In other words, the soil has two layers, and the color of the soil underneath is slightly transparent, giving it a warm and unique whiteness. The part where the iron content of the soil below is exposed becomes a black dot, which is the scenery of the work. Hole kiln firing On top of the two layers of soil, we apply our own glaze and fire it in a kiln called a hole kiln that uses firewood as fuel. Some of the works that soared with the flames fell into the interior of the vessel, and some of them remained unmelted. One point thing All works are produced as one piece. The handle design, relief, and some look the same, but they are all different. There are some differences in size. The vessel grows As you use it, the texture of the work will change. This is due to the water absorption of pottery, which is caused by the penetration of pigments such as tea astringent into the inside of the pottery. As there is a saying to grow vessels, there has been a culture in Japan for a long time that loves this change over time as a scenery (highlight). I think this change is particularly noticeable in the powdering vessel. As a unique work, we hope that you will continue to use it for a long time.
