This Tokoname-yaki tsutsu-gata yunomi is made with a striking green marbled clay and has a light blue glazed interior. The marbled effect is produced through the nerikomi technique, which involves layering different coloured clay. Made by Unzen Kiln (雲仙窯).

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.
