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 more than 300 colors, are highly appreciated and viewed with awe.

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.

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.

Red and white color of UME plum flowers are decorated on thin branches inside and outside the teacup. Some flowers are in full bloom, and others are still in bud, evoking the image that winter is coming to an end, and spring is just around the corner. Light brown color outside the cup adds to the warm atmosphere of spring.

Red color plum flower is also decorated with the use of gradation technique. The deep red color of UME plum gradually turns to pink toward the edge of the petals. This way of painting realistically expresses the characteristics of plum.

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. The white glaze coated outside the teacup is also used to express the white UME plum. The golden color of the petal lines and stamens adds a graceful accent.

The pottery wheel marks on the outside not only create a sense of rhythm but also make the tea cup convenient to hold in your 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.

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.
