This Yunomi is simple yet expresses the beauty of flowers, which the people of Japan have cherished since ancient times. UME Japanese plum decorates the inside and outside of the teacup and the creamy color glaze not only adds accent to the plum but also to the unique shape.

KISSHOH of this name means auspicious and UME means plum in Japanese. UME plum blossoms, regarded as an auspicious motif in Japan, are painted with a lovely touch. UME bloom in beautiful red and white color, and gold paint on the surface accents the unique form of this Yunomi.

One of the focal points of this Yunomi is its unique shape. The rim is beautifully flared, the middle of the side is full, and the bottom is tucked. The dark brown color of the iron glaze is decorated around the rim, which accents the teacup. The curve from the rim to the base is not only beautiful, but also lovely to hold in your hand. The lower body is scraped randomly, and fits with the fingertips, feeling as if you touch the beautiful UME Japanese plum tree.

GOHONDE, which are colorful patches of orange, also add warmth to the teacup. It is impossible to fully control the contrasting density of GOHONDE, so that GOHONDE is a little different in each work.

Shunzan Mori used a special technique known as ICCHIN MORI for some of the pistils of the UME plum. The ICCHIN MORI technique creates a soft and pleasant texture and makes us feel as though we are touching a true flower blooming in warm colors.

The green or yellow color of Japanese green tea will enliven this teacup even more, once the tea is poured into the cup. We are certain that this Yunomi will enrich your tea time.
