This large handmade ceramic chalice is a latte lover's dream cup. It's large enough to hold a decent size coffee (or wine or beer) and feels great in your hands - which means it effectively doubles as a hand warmer and what could be more Japanese than that?
This cup is cloaked in a luscious cream glaze with a hint of glassy green over the top, and sports deep lines (resembling the fine bamboo whiskers of a Chasen or tea whisk) and a chocolate clay foot.
*The second cup is not included in this price, but it is by the same artist so they make a striking duo. If you think you need them both - you can find the other one here!
Both Tambayaki cups were purchased from an artists' coop near Kyoto.
8cm diameter across the top
12 cm tall
Handle carefully. Avoid microwave.
**Price includes shipping in Australia
OK, so I was planning to keep these three ceramic beauties from Kyoto because... LOVE!!!!!! As such, I didn't photograph them separately (or did I ...??) If you are brave...
The layered Sankai ceramic bowl is so deliciously moody it comes in two variations... the original has a straight edge and smooth foot while the variant is purposely wonky around...
