This is a flower-shaped teacup and saucer from the RYOUKA series of Usukiyaki. The petal design, a characteristic of Usukiyaki, is graceful and has a sculptural beauty from every angle. The wavy rim casts shadows on the plate and table, creating a beautiful look.

The saucer can also be used as a small plate, suitable for placing snacks, cookies, nuts, fruit, etc.

The lotus shape is inspired by the chrysanthemum plate, the origin of Usuki ware, and arranged in a modern way.
The area around Usuki City is known for its beautiful lotus flowers.

Unlike many other Usukiyaki wares, this piece is shaped on a potter's wheel and then trimmed by craftsmen.

This series was inspired by dignified flowers such as lotus, cherry blossoms, and Kousa dogwood that bloom in the fields and mountains of Usuki in Oita, which is rich in nature.

Since all products are made by hand, there may be individual differences in shape and color.
We hope you will enjoy them as the warmth of handmade products.

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.

I was overwhelmingly impressed!

Musubi Kiln is one of the best companies that I have ever purchased from. The tea cup is a work of art, the authentic Japanese wrapping was memorable, and the shipping was lightning fast. I have never been so pleased with a purchase experience. I absolutely plan on purchasing more from this company in the future! On top of it all, I have developed a greater appreciation for Japanese culture and customs. Thank you so much!
