Drip Cup

The handmade Drip Cup showcases two important parts of the making process: craftsmanship and spontaneity. Each piece is fired with a homemade “kiln glaze” that changes color in the kiln so that not even the maker knows what the piece will look like until it is finished. The effect reveals a runny effect dripping down from its edges, simulating a cup overflowing with generosity. At once colorful and serene, this artful cup is the perfect partner for slow mornings with a cup of tea or afternoon visits with friends.

Because Sakuzan pieces are made to order, the may exhibit some discrepancies in glazing. The glaze features miniscule cracks: this is intentional and an integral part of the ceramic minou yaki aesthetic tradition.
