Sophisticated Kyo Yaki (Kyoto Style)
Made by Tohan Dobuchi at Tohan Kiln
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.
AKANURI means red-lacquered, and SAKURA means cherry blossom in Japanese. SAKURA cherry blossoms are not only a well-loved symbol of spring but are also the national flower of Japan. White SAKURA is painted inside and outside Yunomi, and Tohan expresses its beauty. Adding to that, the contrast between white SAKURA and red lacquered Yunomi is rather elegant. Delicate curved line from the bottom to the top on AKANURI SAKURA characterizes elegance and complements the red-lacquered glaze.
MURASAKINURI means purple lacquer and FUYOH means lotus flower in Japanese. FUYOH lotus flower has been a symbol of beauty, often represented as a beautiful woman in Japanese literature and culture since ancient times. Same as AKANURI SAKURA, the use of purple glaze makes Yunomi gorgeous but elegant and calm. MURASAKI FUYOH has a full shape, which showcases the impressive beauty of the lotus flower.
The form is uniquely beautiful. The curve from rim to bottom is quite elegant and graceful. Upper side of AKANURI SAKURA is finished slimly, and the upper side of MURASAKINURI FUYOH is just a little more generous. Both are quite beautiful.
These Yunomi have a graceful aura that will enliven the atmosphere of your daily table, creating a truly extraordinary experience.
