Tobe-Yaki Ceramic Cup - Fuzzy Dots
$ 34.00 USD
These artful cups are a youthful reinvention of the traditional Japanese pottery style of Tobe-Yaki. Characterized by thick, smooth porcelain glazed with indigo and white patterns, Tobe-Yaki porcelain has been a distinctive Japanese craft style for centuries. More recently, young artists in the village of Tobe are taking the movement in new directions, introducing new glazing techniques like dip-dye and ombre designs while still using the distinct traditional features of the style.
A traditional Japanese craft art, Tobe-Yaki pottery is known for its distinctive indigo blue patterns against a pure white porcelain base. Since the 1770's these clean, thick pieces have been made by hand in the town of Tobe, which has a flourishing porcelain industry based on modern craftsmanship.
