Beautiful tea cups with a soft feel and warm appearance. Cups can be purchased as a set of 4, or per one piece at a time.

The potter continues to use the Akahata white glaze on a reddish soil to bring out this beautiful glossy white surface. With use over time the glaze will start to show a craquelure which will add to the flavor of the cups and their expression.
