This unique Yunomi features a combination of the glossy glaze color and irregular lines. The glossy pale blue or green glaze color covers the dark brown earthenware, and the irregular lines, which are called KANNYU, are well contrasted against the blue or green glaze. The various large and small sizes of blue or green glaze trimmed in KANNYU lines are like transparent gemstones.

The teacups for HAI SEIJI and MOEGIJI are sold as a set.

(HAI SEIJI)
HAI means ash, and SEIJI means celadon green color in Japanese. The ashy light blue color glaze covers this Yunomi.

(MOEGIJI)
MOEGI means spring green and JI means fine-grained earthenware in Japanese. The light yellowish green color, like new sprouts, covers this Yunomi.

The glossy glaze adds to the noble atmosphere of the cup. KANNYU, a type of glaze and technique which gives the appearance of a cracked surface, finely appears on the whole surface of the light yellowish green glaze. KANNYU deepens the WABI SABI atmosphere when used carefully over time.

KANNYU cracking occurs due to the different levels of shrinkage between the earthenware and glaze. When the heated bowl is cooled down, iron oxide is rubbed over the surface of the bowl, and its color gradually sinks into the cracked lines. Each pattern of cracking is so different that each bowl has a unique pattern. The irregular cracked lines and light blue or green glaze color are well reflected on this Yunomi.

The collaboration of elaborate handwork and the irregular beauty of KANNYU cracking creates an elegant teacup. We are certain that this Yunomi will deepen the taste of green tea as it is used day by day.
