This is a Hasami Ware cup made by Kousai Kiln. It is hand-painted to bring out the warm texture of the clay. The entire surface of the teacup is finished with green/blue overglaze painting of grapes and grape leaves.

The rough texture of the clay is coated with a glossy, bright glaze that offers different textures. The surface cracks seen on the inside are due to the traditional technique of "kannyu" (penetration), which allows the viewer to appreciate the beauty of the handwork.

Different colors of the same design are also available. They are slightly smaller in size. You can purchase them together to make a pair gift or use them as a family item.

Kosai Kiln is owned by Hirohiko Umeno, a potter engaged in pottery making in Hasami-cho, Nagasaki Prefecture. He trained at a Kiyomizu ware kiln in Kyoto City and opened his own kiln in Mt. Nakao in 1991. He produces unique pottery based on handmade and hand-painted techniques.

Combining Shigaraki style "Yakishime(high-fired unglazed ceramics)" and traditional "Some-nishiki", his unique style is popular for its fusion of stoneware, which is relatively rare for Hasami ware, and the elegance of Kiyomizu Ware style. The unique motifs of the paintings, such as depictions of plants like flowers and grapes, and animals like cats and rabbits, make it fun to choose from a wide variety of pieces.
