This is a beautiful bright Turkish blue Japanese sake cup.
Made by Kokuzou kiln, known for the gentle and warm stoneware with beautiful colors and elegant design, which tries to create everyday's tableware into something more special.
This series was completed over a full year from the desire to create the original beautiful Turkish blue tablewares of the Kokuzo kiln.
By continuing to take on challenges despite repeated failures, this vibrant color and elegant matte texture were completed.
