This delicate and elegant senchawan (sencha cup) is made from a stylish white clay in a clean, modern, minimalist style, decorated with a simple black stripe. With a classic tulip shape and a modest 40ml capacity, this cup is ideal for savouring high-grade sencha or gyokuro, though can be used for any purpose.

Made by Junzō Maekawa (前川淳蔵), who was born in 1976 and is one of Tokoname's younger kyusu craftsmen. With a background in engineering, Maekawa-san is known for producing functional wares and experimenting with clays and glazes. He is the fourth generation owner of Kenzan Kiln (賢山窯).

Tokoname-yaki (常滑焼) is a type of Japanese pottery that traditionally comes from Tokoname in Aichi Prefecture, Japan. The site of one of Japan’s Six Ancient Kilns, pottery has been made in Tokoname since the 12th century.

Today, Tokoname ware is known for its iconic brick-red clay called shudei. Famously used in teaware and bonsai pots, this clay’s vibrant colour comes from its rich iron content. Tea steeped in unglazed Tokoname teapots is said to have a mellower taste.
