Made by Tohan Dobuchi at Tohan Kiln

Mr. Tohan Dobuchi was born in 1980 and is the fourth Tohan. The first Tohan Dobuchi opened Tohan Kiln in 1922. The current Tohan Dobuchi succeeded the fourth in 2011. Tohan Kiln’s unique works, sustained by high level pottery and drawing techniques and various original elegant color glazes in over three hundred colors, are highly appreciated and viewed with awe.

YUGEN refers to experiencing an immeasurable depth of emotion, and SAKURA are Japanese cherry blossoms. These teacups feature an elegant cherry blossom design, which is one of Tohan's specialties. SAKURA cherry blossoms are one of the best loved flowers of Japan. Tohan gorgeously expresses the elegant scene of SAKURA cherry blossoms. The flowers are painted elegantly, vividly, and intrepidly. SAKURA cherry blossoms are not only a symbol of spring but are also the national flower of Japan.

HARUNO, or springtime field, expresses the vivid and majestic appearance of cherry blossoms in a field in spring. The color gradation of pink in this nostalgic Japanese countryside scene makes the cherry blossoms even more charming. From the front of the HARUNO teacup, you can enjoy the vivid pink of the cherry blossoms, and from a slightly different angle, you can enjoy the contrast with the green of the fields and the blue of the sky in spring.

The two cherry blossom petals painted on the inside of the HARUNO teacup are framed in gold, contributing to the elegance of the scene. When green tea is poured in this teacup, it gives the appearance of two petals falling down into the tea.

USUMOMO means delicate, pale peach color. The entire USUMOMO teacup is painted in this delicate, pale peach color, and the Japanese cherry blossoms painted on the teacup are vivid in color, yet they artfully express the transient beauty of cherry blossoms, whose petals will fall off in just a few days. This awareness of impermanence or the ephemeral nature of beauty is a traditional Japanese sentiment. Tohan has beautifully expressed this sentiment in this USUMOMO teacup. The cherry blossoms framed in gold are quite elegant.

A few cherry blossom branches are also painted on the inside of the USUMOMO teacup. It seems as if the cherry blossom branches painted on the surface have grown to the inside. When you pour green tea in this teacup, you will feel as if you are enjoying a cup of tea at an outdoor tea ceremony while looking at the lovely cherry blossoms.

The white glaze covering the entire surface of each teacup is called MURAGAKE, which is used to create a unique atmosphere. MURAGAKE adds an uneven texture to the entire surface of each teacup.

The reddish-brown color of the coarse clay KOHDAI, the teacup base, adds a discreet accent.

Both teacups have a generous, rounded appearance. They are quite comfortable, pleasant and lovely to hold in your hands.

Once you pour green tea into these white teacups, the color contrast between the green tea and cherry blossom colors is perfectly harmonized. You are sure to fall in love with these fine Kyo-Yaki teacups featuring the beauty of Japanese cherry blossoms.

Tohan Dobuchi

Mr. Tohan Dobuchi was born in 1980 and is the fourth Tohan. The first Tohan Dobuchi opened Tohan Kiln in 1922. The current Tohan Dobuchi succeeded the fourth in 2011. Tohan Kiln's unique works, sustained by high level pottery and drawing techniques and various original elegant glazes in over three hundred colors, are highly appreciated and viewed with awe.
The third Tohan's art was full of creative energy, as he was naturally inquisitive and enjoyed exploring new techniques and designs every day. He studied glaze in Germany, so his works stood out from other Kyo Yaki. In the works 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 styles 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 those within the field of ceramics but also from interior designers and furniture designers in Japan and around the world.
