This Yunomi teacup has a warm and graceful aura. The rustic brown color glaze creates the warm atmosphere of the earthenware teacup. Six bold white lines are vertically painted outside the teacup, and golden narrow lines add to the graceful atmosphere. The white-colored, stamped flowers add a warm accent to the teacup.

YAKISHIME means baking pottery at high temperatures, KINSAI means gold paint and MISHIMA means stamps in Japanese.

As its name suggests, this Yunomi has a simple color, which reminds us of rustic baking. The brown color is very classic. Therefore, it is easy to use in any scene and goes well with any Japanese green tea. You can also feel the natural texture of the clay.

This Yunomi is created by a technique called MISHIMA. Before shaped clay is dried, patterns are marked by stamp stick, carved with flowers or another similar design. It is one of the traditional techniques of Kyo Yaki.

Simple yet impressive stamped flowers are inlayed uniformly around the outside of the Yunomi. The centers of the flowers are colored white, which looks brilliant against the rustic brown color.

One additional feature of this Yunomi is its golden color. The gold brings a luxurious impression to this simple and classic Yunomi tea cup.

Many of the processes used by the artisan to create this teacup require much time and effort. The techniques of glazing, MISHIMA stamping, and gold paint are all merged into one graceful teacup. To consider the quality of this work, it is available at a reasonable price. We are sure that you will enjoy drinking Japanese tea in this elaborate cup.
