Introducing the USUKIYAKI mug cup with an elegant handle design. Sipping your favorite beverages like coffee or tea from this cup adds a touch of sophistication to your routine.

Despite the elegant feel of the handle, its shape and name have an intriguing origin. The body of the mug boasts a beer stein shape, offering solid weight and stability. Also, HP stands for half pint, signifying that when filled to the brim, the mug can hold about half a pint (approximately 237ml or 8oz) of your preferred drinks.

The slender handle is easy to grasp, complete with an elegant thumb rest. The mug's mouth is angled for comfortable sipping, and the bottom features a slightly elevated base that casts a subtle shadow around it.

The black variant has an overall matte texture, whereas the white one boasts a glossy clear glaze on the inside, ensuring an easy-to-clean finish. Unlike many other USUKIYAKI pieces, this piece is crafted on a potter's wheel and then delicately trimmed by craftsmen.

As all our products are handmade, there might be slight variations in shape and color. We hope you appreciate the unique warmth of our handmade items. Discover more about our product quality here.

USUKIYAKI

USUKIYAKI is the Japanese name for Usukiware, but it is also a project name. It suddenly disappeared from the world 200 years ago. However, in 2015, local potters revived this mysterious pottery.

The works, which are a fusion of traditional techniques and modern sensibilities, have a mysterious texture that reminds us of nostalgia in the midst of newness.

Its reputation in Japan and abroad is growing every day, and it is becoming increasingly difficult to obtain.

Handcrafted plates using the “Katauchi” Method

Usuki ware has many white porcelain wreaths made by Shimabara potters. It is a beautiful design in which the food is placed in the middle of the flower.

To form the plates, they covered a plaster mold with a thin layer of base material and pressed it by hand to form a circle flower or petal, or used the Katauchi method, a molding technique that copies the pattern carved into the mold onto the bowl.

In this way, the warmth of hand-building remains, compared to casting, which involves pouring liquid pottery into a mold.

AbouT USUKI ware

Usuki ware is based on the concept that a vessel is a frame for serving food.

To bring out the beauty of the traditional food culture of Usuki, such as ingredients nurtured by the rich sea and mountains, organically grown crops, and the miso, soy sauce, and sake that have been used since ancient times, the pottery is created using natural shapes and materials as motifs.

They hope to bring this food culture, as well as the beauty of nature and the creative spirit of Usuki, to the tables of people around the world through their creations.
