This FUKU RAKU Yunomi is Raku-yaki style Yunomi. In Japan, Raku-yaki is regarded as the highest grade Matcha bowl used for the tea ceremony. Raku-yaki is a very unique ceramics technique that was developed only for Matcha bowls in Kyoto about 450 years ago. There are two main kinds of Raku-yaki: Kuro-raku, which means black Raku-yaki, and Aka-raku, which means red Raku-yaki. This Yunomi is modeled after Aka-raku.

This Yunomi is made while referring to traditional Raku-yaki techniques. For example, one of the most remarkable characteristics of Aka-raku is its beautiful red color and the areas of smoky black called FU. FU is one of the color changes that occur when Raku-yaki is traditionally fired, while surrounded by charcoal.
This Yunomi faithfully reproduce the traditional colors of Raku-yaki.

In addition to the above, Raku-yaki is formed by hand without using the potter's wheel. The forming method is called TEDUKUNE. This Yunomi is formed just like TEDUKUNE. It nicely fits in the hand.

This sophisticated Yunomi pair well with our genuine high-quality Japanese tea. The beauty of Raku-yaki will certainly capture your heart.

Specially packaged in a carton box.
Lead-free. Made in Japan.
