One of my favourite teacups that I've come across on Etsy, and is even more curious when held. The faceting and wood-firing effects is reminiscent of Bizen ceramics, the the lightly crazed white glaze on the inside allows effective use in studying tea. On the outside each facet tells a different story of the firing. Looking forward to more Yuish teacups!

Absolutely gorgeous. Clearly made with love and very sturdy. Bought for my father as part of a retirement gift. He loves it!

Functional Wood Fired Pottery!

Wood-firing has been my primary method of firing. My focus is on the natural ash-glazed surface and soft color changes of wood-fired ergonomic utilitarian ware. The surface and the color of wood-fired pottery becomes delightful for users.
As wood-fired pottery can be harmonized with various colors of food, it consequently has been loved in Japan for several hundreds of years. I intend for my wood-fired work to be used on the table, in the kitchen, and around the home, everyday.

    I was born in Japan and studied ceramics in the United States. My work consists of creating a simple design that retains the idea of kinoubi, the foundation of Japanese art that equates function with beauty.

Buyer is responsible for the cost of shipping/handling. All packages will be shipped via ground shipping (either parcel post or priority mail) from North Carolina. All Items will be "double boxed" and shipped with delivery confirmation. Insurance will be added to the item(s) over $50. I use reclaimed/recycled materials (boxes, bubble wrap, newspaper, etc) for packing. Please feel free to recycle or reuse them.

If you live on the west side of the US, I will have to ship the item(s) via USPS parcel post unless you pay the extra for Priority mail service. Unfortunately the amount I charge for shipping does not cover the cost of shipping with priority mail to the west coast.

I will ship items to Canada though insurance and delivery confirmation cannot be provided unless you choose priority mail or express mail. Please contact me first so that I can arrange a shipping profile for you.

If you live outside of the US or Canada, please let me know first so I can give you a shipping quote.

I hope you will find something you like at my shop.

Thank you.
