This modern style Green and Red STRIPE cup is decorated with fine red color and thick green color stripes. Each stripe pattern is decorated in a simple and even manner. This tea cup looks modern rather than traditional, but this design is actually a Japanese traditional auspicious pattern. When you hold this piece in your hands and take a closer look, you will discover the elaborate sophistication of this Kyo-Yaki ceramic.

The stripe design on this cup is called KOMA SUJI in Japanese. KOMA means a toy top, and SUJI means line in Japanese. KOMA is a traditional toy, played with during the New Year holiday celebration in Japan, and is said to be an auspicious item. Adding to that, each SUJI line is continuously circled around the tea cup, and this everlasting stripe design without end traditionally indicates lasting peace, hope for the future, and prosperity of descendants for a long time. This design looks simple and modern, and yet it has profound significance.

The line decoration is also one of the focal points on this tea cup. Each line is painted by hand. Two golden lines are circled inside the cup, adding to the graceful atmosphere. Fine red lines create a sharp impression, while thick transparent green lines create a feeling of warmth, which derives from being painted by hand. Not only vivid colors but also silver transparent glaze is painted between each line by hand. This glaze reflects the light faintly, and adds a sensation of brightness. Each line is decorated by hand elaborately, and various horizontal lines are well harmonized.

This Yunomi has a unique form. The overall appearance is vertical, but the middle part of this teacup is slightly carved. The sturdy form gives an impression of strength, but KOMA SUJI line toward the rim reminds us of geniality.

The fusion between the modern shape and color of this earthenware tea cup and the traditional pattern of KOMA SUJI are in perfect balance. 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.
