Tea Cup ‘Yunomi’ Kohiki – Kouichi Osada


This unique Yunomi tea cup is hand crafted by Artisan Kouichi Osada from Hiroshima, in his signature Kohiki style of pottery.

Kohiki pottery is an ancient technique where an engobe (white clay slip) is painted on the raw clay surface, before a glaze is applied. It leads to a gentle white colour that is prone to changing colour and texture over time with use.

Masters of the tea ceremony admire this colour variation, as the vessel evolves to develop a unique ‘flavour’ on the surface that reflects the user of the cup.

Size: Height 85mm / Diameter 75mm
