Whiskey Barrel Ash Glazed Japanese Tea Cup Pair
This product is unavailable
A pair of stunning Japanese shigaraki-yaki Yunomi tea cups, crafted in Japan by Hozan Tanii. The particularly interesting, grey and green glaze on the cups comes from the ash of Suntory Whisky barrels- made of wood from white oak trees, and in continual use at the historic Japanese distillery for over 50 years.
The image created by the subtle colours, textures and patterns in the glaze, brings to mind the nebulae of exploded stars and distant galaxies in space. Two separate whisky barrel ash glazes are carefully combined to create the effect. The foot of each cup shows the natural colour of the clay underneath, and features a slightly rough texture and subtle shaping.
This pair of Yunomi tea cups would make an ideal gift for someone with an appreciation of whisky or with sophisticated taste. Comes in a handsome gift box.
