This Yunomi is well planned and designed, though it looks quite simple at first glance. You will be impressed when you feel its thinness and light weight, which are marks of sophistication.

SOMETSUKE refers to traditional Japanese ceramics that have been painted on white ground with a pattern mainly made of cobalt oxide and then baked at high temperature with transparent glaze. It's simple yet very sophisticated and very easy to use all year round.

SOHKA of this name means flowers in Japanese. As its name suggests, famous Japanese flowers are boldly drawn on the surface.

TESSEN means clematis in Japanese, which is one of the seasonal flowers arranged for the tea ceremony. The purple color of TESSEN clematis is beautifully reflected on the white color teacup elegantly and calmly. The flowers and plants are vividly painted by zaffer glaze in Tohan's specific painting style, which always fascinates viewers.

The pottery wheel marks on the outside not only create a sense of rhythm but also make the teacup convenient to hold in your hands without slipping.

This Yunomi has a graceful aura, that will change even your daily tea time to an extraordinary experience.

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

Mr. Tohan Dobuchi was born in 1980 and is the fourth Tohan. The first Tohan Dobuchi opened Tohan Kiln at 1922. Now's Tohan Dobuchi succeeded the fourth at 2011.
The third Tohan’s art was full of creative energy, as he was naturally inquisitive and enjoys exploring new techniques and designs every day. He studied glaze in Germany, so his worked stand out from other Kyo Yaki. In the artworks of Tohan, they are incorporated with designs of flowering grasses that are found in nature. The third Tohan developed Tohan’s original world of glaze, color and design.
The fourth Tohan has been developing new Tohan world like HANA KESSHO crystal glaze lines. And these days, Tohan Kiln also creates beautiful lamps, tables and other interior designs. Works receive a high evaluation from not only the ceramic industry but also various fields.
