SEKICHUKA (handcrafted Multi-cup: 140ml)

Photo Gallery

Handcrafted Multi-cup: 140ml (4.93fl oz), diameter: 3.54inches (9cm) height: 2.76inches (7cm)
Sophisticated Shigaraki -Yaki
Made by Hozan Tanii

This is a multi-use cup suitable for use as a tea cup as well as a matcha bowl.
The name of this matcha bowl SEKICHUKA means "flowers in the snow" in Japanese. The artist Mr. Tanii imagined a scene of "spring coming soon" and created this with an early spring atmosphere. This item is made with three layers of glaze. The red or mauve color glaze and white color glaze looks like a flower and snow. The brown color at the bottom looks like earth under the snow.

The red or mauve color emerging on the white glaze is a unique technique developed by Mr. Tanii. It takes advantage of the difference in melting points between both glazes. The red color glaze, which is very rare, is brought by reduced copper. The white glaze is based on NAMAKO glaze, developed around the beginning of the 20th century by Naokata Tanii, who was six generations before Hozan, and was well-known for his quality Shigaraki Yaki. The traditional NAMAKO glaze has been updated in a modern style. The brown color is created by soil containing fine iron. The burnt iron has a faint glimmer or shine, and the technique is known as iron solubilization.

The size and form is designed to be suitable for use as a tea cup, matcha bowl, whiskey glass, ice cream bowl, and so on. You will be able to use this freely according to your image.

This is quite a magical multi-cup: it appears both traditional and simple, and yet sophisticated and modern. And it has so many uses. It completely depends on you how much this multi-cup can broaden your green moment—you are limited only by your imagination!

Hozan Tanii

Hozan Tanii was born in 1953. He graduated from the technical art department at Osaka Art University. And he took over the third generation of Tanikan Kiln in 1983. He is one of only a few artisans who explore the infinite beauty, depth, and range of clay itself, in contrast to the many artisans who explore glaze colors or printing. He has and makes full use of fourteen kinds of kilns and several tens of thousands kinds of glaze in order to bring out the boundlessness possibility of earthen clay. He frequently goes to the mountain in Shigaraki where he lives and collects clay. He has continued to experiment using the clay he finds and tries to bring out the infinite possibility of clay for over 30 years. All of his arts are well-planned and elaborated in various view points, beauty, function, usefulness, and so on. In addition, made from sustainable natural elements, his creations work symbiotically with the earth's ecosystem.
