Flamenco is a series born from an exploration of "color". The characteristic yellow hue is warm with a slight reddish tinge, which is described as "Yamabuki Iro" in Japanese. The name "Yamabuki Iro" comes from the "Yamabuki"(Japanese kerria), which has lovely yellow flowers in spring.
It took more than a year to find a kiln that could produce the ideal color, and by using stoneware instead of porcelain, a beautiful warm color with a rustic feel was achieved. The texture of the earthenware, the slightly iron-powdered look, and the caramel-colored outer rims, which serves as a point of reference, combine to create a unique color.
This "Flamenco" series has an emotional appeal that evokes the scenery of the mountain trail full of warm yellow flowers reflecting the sunlight.
The Framenco series is also available in other sizes and shapes.

All round applause!
It’s colouration, modernity, light, low density for a earthen ware yet high strength; the equivalent of borosilicate glass in my opinion.
