This Yunomi is created by the traditional technique known as KOHCHI. KOHCHI technique, much-prized in tea ceremony, is to edge each pattern, placing a fine border of clay around each design. This limits the flowing of glaze or pigment and allows the artisan to create a graceful, vivid pattern. There is no brush unevenness and the surface is smooth and glossy like stained glass, which is the most desirable characteristic of the KOHCHI technique. KOHCHI porcelain has an indescribable noble and graceful atmosphere; its creation requires great care and a fine touch.

TAKARA DUKUSHI in Japanese means filled with treasures. This Yunomi is lyrically and exquisitely decorated with auspicious motifs. Each auspicious motif expresses the following: hand scroll: knowledge and wisdom; SHIPPOH GARA: seven treasures; HYOHTAN Japanese calabashes: perfect health; gavel: getting a wish; weight: accumulation of wealth; pouch: health and wealth.
Yellow is a traditional color of celebration. The yellow color is vividly and uniformly painted without brush unevenness.

The form is gracefully rounded. It has a large capacity and unique atmosphere. The base is carefully scraped away and finished with a traditional method found only among highest quality porcelain.

In Japan, highest quality Kyo Yaki porcelain such as this is also purchased with the intent that it will be passed down from generation to generation. It is also suitable for display, for example, in an office or library. It depends upon your vision and preference.
