Handcrafted Multi-cup: 180ml (6.34fl oz), diameter: 3.54inches (9.0cm) height: 2.76inches (7.0cm)
Sophisticated Kyo-Yaki (Kyoto Style)
Made by Tohan Dobuchi at Tohan Kiln

This porcelain multi-cup creates an aura of elegance and opposite sensations of traditional WABI SABI and avant-garde. HANA KOHCHI line, composed with 12 colors and flowers of the Japanese four seasons, is a new line of Tohan Kiln.

This is large for a Yunomi teacup, and can be held with both hands. The teacup rim is beautifully flared open. Side of middle to bottom is somewhat slim and the base is shaped small. The sides are vertically scraped away, to create not only a sense of rhythm but also shading of glaze. Whole form is beautiful, despite the large size.

AKI KUSA means autumn grasses, and some grasses and flowers blooming in autumn are painted on this cup. Tohan gorgeously expresses the elegant scene of autumn plants.
Autumn plants are commonly used in Japanese traditional crafts, such as kimono, furniture, and teaware. Various kinds of autumn plants and flowers are colorfully painted inside the teacup.

Porcelain glazed by KOHCHI technique is usually uniform in color without variation which is the essential feature of traditional KOHCHI technique. However, Tohan creates the color variation with purpose. The harmony of the elegance of vividly painted flower and WABI SABI atmosphere created by the color variation of glaze is one area of expertise of Tohan kiln.

The size and form is suitable for use as a tea cup, whiskey glass, ice cream bowl, and so on. This cup is useful and well-designed.

Tohan Dobuchi

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 glazes in over three hundred colors, are highly appreciated and viewed with awe.
The third Tohan's art was full of creative energy, as he was naturally inquisitive and enjoyed exploring new techniques and designs every day. He studied glaze in Germany, so his works stood out from other Kyo Yaki. In the works of Tohan, they are incorporated with designs of flowering grasses that are found in nature. The third Tohan developed Tohan’s original world of glaze, color and design.
The fourth Tohan has been developing new styles like HANA KESSHO crystal glaze lines. And these days, Tohan Kiln also creates beautiful lamps, tables and other interior designs. Works receive a high evaluation from not only those within the field of ceramics but also from interior designers and furniture designers in Japan and around the world.
