GOSU means a blue pigment for drawing dyeing patterns. The pattern of GOSU drawn on the white base changes to a pale indigo color when fired. KUSHIME refers to the lines that are created after combing Japanese women's hair. It is a traditional pattern, carefully painted by Kyo-Yaki artisans.

At first glance, KOHDAI Yunomi looks like a quirky shape, with the motif of BAJOHAI, a Samurai’s cup. It is said that the Samurai of the Warring States period of Japan in the olden days, designed a cup to make it easier to drink the SAKE of victory on horseback. The style has been adapted into a matcha bowl created by a playful tea master, and we are now offering it as KOHDAI Yunomi.

Even if you pour hot tea, the arrow pedestal on KOHDAI Yunomi does not conduct heat, and you can sense the coolness from the pale blue of GOSU and the rhythmic comb pattern of KUSHIME. While appreciating the ancient origins of this unique piece, you can enjoy Japanese tea in the summer with GOSU KUSHIME-KOHDAI Yunomi.

The artist Kagetsu Hara has made use of numerous special techniques and efforts to create this Yunomi. Considering the time and effort that went into creating each teacup, the price is quite reasonable. You will certainly be delighted with these elegant and gracious Yunomi.

Specially packaged in a carton box.
