Coffee Mug in Unglazed Porcelain
Simple and unadorned, this Japanese Amakusa porcelain mug was designed with tactility and functionality in mind. Left unglazed, it is simultaneously spare and rough around the edges. Not quite earthenware and not quite your standard fare porcelain, its unique organic texture lies comfortably in the grey area.
Utilizing 400-year-old Japanese techniques, the raw pottery is fired at a high heat which creates a natural seal, eliminating the need for a glaze.
Combination fitted lid and coaster can protect table or keep your drink warm.
Microwave and dishwasher safe.
Fitted lids sold separately.
Note that as a natural product, color will vary slightly from piece to piece.
Utilizing pottery techniques dating back to the Edo period, Hasami Porcelain breaks the mold a bit – crafting modern, multifunctional tableware in a pared down, sleek Japanese aesthetic.
Materials: Unglazed porcelain and clay.
Designed in California, made in Japan.
