HANA SOROE means flower arrangement 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 tea, but once you try this Yunomi, you'll know it is really quite comfortable, pleasant and lovely to hold in your hands.

MOMIJI means autumn red leaves in Japanese. They are a well-loved symbol of autumn in Japan, like the SAKURA flower is a symbol of spring. The refined beauty of MOMIJI is well expressed on this Yunomi teacup. MOMIJI leaves are turning to red with the seasonal transition, and the color gradation is quite delicate and beautiful. New sprouts around the branch also turn deep red, creating vigorous imagery. The subtle gradation in colors evokes the peak of the autumn foliage season.

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?

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.
