Although it is a little small for a teacup, it is just the right size and can be used for a variety of purposes. You can pour directly from a No. 4 bottle without using a katakuchi or tokkuri, making it ideal for drinking parties at home.
By firing in a wood-fired kiln, you can feel the powerful firing that is unique to Mr. Maruta, and you can enjoy the bold taste even in powdered pottery. In addition, abstract ink painting is applied to create a unique atmosphere. The interesting shape makes it attractive as a teacup.
