This pair of Tokoname-yaki yunomi (teacups) is made with a striking olive green and white marbled clay and is decorated with a tochiri pattern: fine diagonal slashes made with a razor blade.

The marbled effect is produced through the nerikomi technique, which involves layering different coloured clay. Stamped Kenji (憲児).

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.
