Usuki Regular Cup

JPY ¥8,400
Color: White

This regular sized cup has a distinctive and gorgeous handle. It is one size smaller than the Usuki Mug Cup.

The body of the cup is slightly trapezoidal, with a solid weight and stability. The slender handle is easy to hold and the mouth is designed at a comfortable angle for easy drinking.

The black color has an overall matte texture, while the white color is coated with a glossy clear glaze only on the inside for an easy-to-clean finish.

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

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.
