Haiyūsai Green Tea Cup Set by Ikai Yūichi
Kyoto native Ikai Yūichi has trained under the late Shimizu Uichi (1926-2004) who, in 1985, was awarded the title of Living National Treasure for his outstanding work in ceramic making. And it is from his sensei that Ikai learned the secrets to coaxing subtle hues and fluid effects from the oldest and most rudimentary of all glazes - hai, or ash.
These striking green tea cups are glazed in a natural rice straw ash and came from the kiln enrobed with an organic, fluid quality. They promise to become a green tea-loving couple's treasure.
A wooden presentation box will be custom made to order and signed by the artist. Delivery time for this item is 2 weeks.
