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.
HANA SOROE means that the flowers are all arranged in Japanese. There are twelve teacups in this series, which is the most popular advanced line at Tohan Kiln. This Yunomi has a unique shape. We call this Yunomi's shape 'Tama-Yunomi'. 'Tama' means 'ball' in Japanese. You may think this Yunomi is not easy to use to drink green tea, but once you try this Yunomi, you'll know it is really quite comfortable, pleasant and lovely to hold in your hands.
KOHAKU TSUBAKI means red and white color camellia flowers. Camellia flowers are one of the most traditional, cherished flowers of Japan, especially prized in tea ceremony. The flowers are painted elegantly, vividly, and intrepidly on the side of this Yunomi. Camellia is an evergreen and blooms even in a shady area or in winter season, and the flower is so beautiful. It is the reason why the camellia has been well-loved in Japan for generations.
KOHAKU BAI means red and white color UME plum. Plum, a traditional symbol of wintertime or early spring in Japan, is painted elegantly on the surface. Plum is a special auspicious flower in Japan because it is said that plum is the first to bloom of all spring flowers.
The use of golden color also contributes to the elegance of the HANA, Japanese flowers and plants. The detailed description of them make this cup more brilliant.
Both inside and outside white color is also finished with brush lines, which create the WABI SABI atmosphere. A little rough clay modestly adds accent.
This elegant high-grade teacup has a graceful and sophisticated aura.
Once you pour green tea into this teacup, the color contrast between green tea and HANA flower colors is well harmonized with this white glaze teacup. Would you enjoy the Japanese beautiful flower scene with this cup?
