These Yunomi teacups are designed in the motif of Art Nouveau, the international modern movement that flourished in Europe during the late 19th century to the early 20th century. Three flowers colored in blue and red bloom on the outside of each teacup, and its colors match the lovely shaped form. The unique glazing adds warmth to each teacup.

SHIN means new, BI means beauty, and SOH means plant in Japanese. The design on these teacups is based on Art Nouveau, meaning new art. Flowers or plants are designed without conventional art style, and new materials are used in this art. The unique color of the glaze coats the inside and outside of each teacup, and another glaze which contains coarse particles is painted on the outside. The plain color of glazing adds a warm atmosphere.
In addition, those glazes emphasize the loveliness of the flowers. Earth colored glazes are very simple, but their simplicity harmonizes the painting of the flowers, and enhances its loveliness. The unique shape of these Yunomi teacups creates a pleasant and lovely atmosphere to hold in your hands.

These Yunomi look very simple, but many of the processes used by the artisan, such as the glazing method, require much time and effort. The glazing technique and design based on Art Nouveau creates a lovely atmosphere. Please enjoy our genuine Japanese green tea with these lovely teacups which bring sincere warmth from the heart.
