Japanese traditional and popular flowers are decorated on this natural and simple texture multi-cup. Flower stamps colored in white bloom on the natural clay earthenware. The flared shape also adds accent not only to the cup but also to the flowers.

INKA of this name means stamped flower, MON means crest or pattern, and KURO means black in Japanese. INKA flower stamps, which are colored in white, are decorated outside the cup, and these stamps gradually expand from the vase to the rim, as if the flowers grow and bloom lively. Different kinds of flowers are stamped, such as AYAME Japanese iris, TSUBAKI camellia, NADESHIKO dianthus, and SAKURA cherry blossom. Four flowers are well harmonized on this multi-cup.

In the inside of the black multi-cup, linear marks made by brush are implemented. This traditional technique is called HAKEME.

The form of this Yunomi is flared open toward the rim. The sturdy form on the bottom gives an impression of strength, but the curved line toward the rim reminds us of geniality.
Not only the form of the multi-cup but also the finger line called YUBIATO, made by the potter's wheel, adds subtle elegance. YUBIATO horizontal traces also fit into the hands comfortably.

Different types of flowers are stamped toward the rim in a lively manner, and also add to the graceful atmosphere. These multi-cups are suitable not only to enjoy the subtle flavor of high quality Japanese tea, but also to enjoy various drinks, for example, Japanese iced tea, fruit smoothie, coffee, wine or sake. It depends upon your vision and preference.
