This Obori Soma-yaki guinomi (small cup) features a beautifully crazed pink glaze around the lip that flows into turquoise down the side of the cup.
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.
