Made by Tohan Dobuchi at Tohan Kiln

HANA TSUDOI means flower gathering in Japanese. There are twelve tea cups in this series, and different flowers from season to season are decorated in each cup. HANA TSUDOI tea cup is one of the most popular in the advanced line at Tohan Kiln.
SAKURA means cherry blossoms in Japanese, and it is one of the best loved flowers of Japan. Tohan gorgeously expresses the elegant scene of SAKURA cherry blossoms.
Wide variety of expressions of cherry blossoms, from emerging to full bloom, are painted on this Yunomi brilliantly and sophisticatedly. Especially, gradation of pink color and the golden color which is used on the petal contours make SAKURA cherry blossoms more attractive. The deep pink color of cherry blossoms arranged in the center of the flower gradually turns to white toward the edge of the petals. This way of painting realistically expresses the characteristics of cherry blossoms.
The inside and outside of this Yunomi are glazed white and finished with brush lines, which create a fine atmosphere. One can see the natural color of the clay at the rim and base, which modestly accents the beautiful white glaze. Pottery wheel marks on the outside not only create a sense of rhythm but also make the tea cup convenient to hold in ones hands without slipping.
The flowers and white glaze on each cup bring a warm atmosphere. We are certain that this Yunomi will enrich your green tea moment.
