Made by Tohan Dobuchi

Mr. Tohan Dobuchi was born in 1980 and is the fourth Tohan. The first Tohan Dobuchi opened Tohan Kiln in 1922. The current Tohan Dobuchi succeeded the fourth in 2011. Tohan Kiln’s unique works, sustained by high level pottery and drawing techniques and various original elegant color glazes in over three hundred colors, are highly appreciated and viewed with awe.

GEKKA BIJIN means Selenicereus flower. The flower is painted elegantly, vividly, and intrepidly on the inside. GEKKA BIJIN blossoms are about 7.9inch / 20cm in diameter and bloom only one night with a lovely scent, said to be like heaven. The outside is colored pale green, evoking the beauty of Selenicereus leaves under moonlight.

FUYOH is one type of lotus flower, which is painted elegantly, vividly, and intrepidly inside. FUYOH lotus flower has been used as a symbol of beauty, often represented as a beautiful woman in Japanese literature and culture since ancient times. ORIBE means traditional vivid green color.

Outside green color and inside white color is finished with brush lines, which create atmosphere. A little rough clay modestly adds accent.

We don't usually offer pillbox-style Yunomi like those used at SUSHI restaurants, but these Yunomi are painted quite exquisitely and elegantly, so we can’t help but add them to our line. Because the capacity is rather large (225ml / 7.19fl oz), it is suitable not only to enjoy subtle flavor of high quality Japanese tea, but also to enjoy various drinks, for example, Japanese iced tea, fruit smoothie, wine or sake, or another. It depends upon your vision and preference.

This Yunomi has a unique special graceful aura, so that we are certain this should change even your daily tea time to an extraordinary experience.

Tohan Dobuchi

Mr. Tohan Dobuchi was born in 1980 and is the fourth Tohan. The first Tohan Dobuchi opened Tohan Kiln in 1922. The current Tohan Dobuchi succeeded the fourth in 2011. Tohan Kiln's unique works, sustained by high level pottery and drawing techniques and various original elegant glazes in over three hundred colors, are highly appreciated and viewed with awe.
The third Tohan's art was full of creative energy, as he was naturally inquisitive and enjoyed exploring new techniques and designs every day. He studied glaze in Germany, so his works stood out from other Kyo Yaki. In the works of Tohan, they are incorporated with designs of flowering grasses that are found in nature. The third Tohan developed Tohan’s original world of glaze, color and design.
The fourth Tohan has been developing new styles like HANA KESSHO crystal glaze lines. And these days, Tohan Kiln also creates beautiful lamps, tables and other interior designs. Works receive a high evaluation from not only those within the field of ceramics but also from interior designers and furniture designers in Japan and around the world.
