Japanese Teacup - Kanji Decorated Faux-Obori Soma-yaki Yunomi - 120ml
This yunomi (teacup) features a moulded body, resembling Obori Soma-yaki, decorated with kanji.
Obori Soma-yaki (大堀相馬焼) is a type of Japanese porcelain produced in the town of Namie in Fukushima Prefecture, and dates back to the early Edo period.
The most distinctive features of Obori-soma ware are its celadon glazes which feature large crazing patterns, hand-painted horse motifs, and double-walled construction. This double-walled technique provides insulation, keeping liquids hot and your hands cool, and is unique to Obori Soma-yaki.
