Enjoy a special cup of tea, sake,Β or shochu in this charming yunomi (cup). The dimple at the side of the cup is meant for your thumb, and we love the swirl design on the bottom!

There was a time when Akahada pottery was made exclusively for the local shrines and priests, andΒ we are so lucky to carry these special ceramics.

Please note: each piece by Furuse Gyozo is unique – enjoy these handmade pieces and their subtle differences and glazes ranging from white, pink, and powder blue.Β 

Furuse Gyozo is in its 8th generation ownership under Noriko Furuse, who lives on site of the three kilns where the Akahada pottery is designed, fired, and finished. The signature Akahada red clay is sourced from her back yard, a material that has been used for pottery since the 1500s. The result are pieces that express unique hues like white, pink, and powder blue.Β Read about Yoko's visit to Furuse Gyozo on ourΒ blog!
