Traditional Kyo Yaki (Kyoto Style)
Made by Tohan Dobuchi at Tohan Kiln

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 with a blue pattern mainly made of cobalt oxide over a white base glaze and then coated with transparent glaze and baked at a high temperature. It's simple yet sophisticated and 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.

SUI of this name means water and SEN means mountain sage. It seems that SUISEN was named for the appearance of the narcissus bloom, which looks like a sage who lives alone in the mountains, such as perhaps a Buddhist monk, with a leaning neck. Narcissus is considered a symbol of hope in many countries because it blooms last in winter to early spring.

The COSMOS blooming in autumn are painted on this cup. The COSMOS are painted elegantly, vividly, and intrepidly. This teacup features an elegant COSMOS design, which is one of Tohan's specialties. The flowers and plants are vividly painted in Tohan's unique style, which always fascinates viewers.

The overall rounded form is indescribably charming and gives the viewer a sense of comfort. The rounded shape also fits your hand wonderfully well and makes you feel comfortable from the sense of touch.

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.

Tohan Dobuchi

Mr. Tohan Dobuchi was born in 1980 and is the fourth Tohan. He became the fourth Tohan in 2011.
The first Tohan Dobuchi opened Tohan Kiln in 1922. 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 stand out from other Kyo Yaki. The artworks of Tohan incorporate 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 designs like HANA KESSHO crystal glaze lines. And these days, Tohan Kiln also creates beautiful lamps, tables and other interior designs. Works from Tohan Kiln receive a high evaluation from not only the ceramic industry but also from various other fields. 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.
