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

BEI means rice, SHOKU means color, and JI means fine-grained earthenware in Japanese. The ecru beige color like rice stalks covers this Yunomi teacup.

The glossy glaze adds to the noble atmosphere. This Yunomi features KANNYU, a type of glaze and technique which gives the appearance of fine cracks over the whole surface. 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 cup has a unique pattern. The irregular cracked lines and light ecru beige color 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.

Specially packaged in a carton box.
Lead-free. Made in Japan.
(Please note that each piece is unique due to the techniques employed by the artisan. There are natural variations in each piece.)
