Add joy to the simple act of drinking with this Crackle Tea Cup made in the traditional banko yaki style. Each versatile vessel sports a unique finish that is expertly applied to the surface by the craftspeople at Nankei Seizoen, a small banko yaki workshop that has been operating since 1913. As you use it, pigments will be deposited in the cup's interior grooves, causing it to grow even more beautiful with age.

Banko Yaki Ceramics

Based in Mie Prefecture,banko yaki is a traditional ceramic art style entrenched in Japanese culture. Since their creation in the 18th century, banko yaki ceramics offer unique heat resistance and beautiful but practical compositions in muted, earthen colors. These pieces continue to honor an ancient technique in the modern world by reshaping the past to fit the needs of the present.
