These modern Yunomi teacups of white porcelain with a beautiful celadon glaze are both stylish and charming.

NISHOKU means two colors, and SUIRYU means water flow in Japanese. Two colors of white and blue-green separately coat the teacup. Two light colors are well contrasted and well matched to the white porcelain. On the outer surface glaze, two horizontal lines are randomly decorated, which create an image of a stream. Both glazes emphasize the refreshing feeling of water.

This teacup has a unique shape. The middle body is narrow, and its construction fits our hands comfortably. When we hold this teacup, it feels as if we scoop pure water from the stream.

Ms. Sawako Taniguchi's porcelain works are characterized by delicate and elegant design, vivid glaze usage, and exceptional turning wheel skill. Her turning wheel technique is highly appreciated even among other artisans. Generally it is said that the porcelain turning wheel is several times more difficult than the pottery turning wheel. However, she shapes porcelain vividly and airily as if it is pottery. She is one of several young artisans that we would very much like to support and champion her future success.

At first glance, you certainly feel that this is a well designed work. And considering the details and quality, the price is very reasonable. The value of this will only grow over time and bring joy not only in the summer season but throughout the year.
