Shigaraki Yaki Shime Black Glazed Cup

This is an exemplary piece of Shigaraki ware, reflecting the centuries-old traditions and meticulous craftsmanship of this ancient art form.

Its name in Japanese, "Kousai Kuroyaki-shime", indicates its lustrous black fired finish, a feature achieved by the high-temperature firing of Shigaraki's distinctive local clay rich in feldspar and quartz.

You may refer to the following content for more information about the famous Shigaraki ware.

What is Shigaraki ware?

Shigaraki ware, or Shigaraki-yaki, is one of the Six Ancient Kilns of Japan, originating from the Shigaraki region in Shiga Prefecture. With roots dating back to the 12th century, this traditional craft flourished during the Muromachi period (1336–1573), and has been intimately linked with the tea ceremony since the 16th century.

The pottery's distinctive characteristics come from the local clay rich in feldspar and quartz, which produces natural glaze and warm, earthy tones during firing. Despite being widely recognised for its large tanuki (Japanese raccoon dog) figurines, Shigaraki ware also includes tea utensils, plates, vases, and contemporary art pieces.

Japanese potteries are hand made. It is normal to have imperfections such as pits, marks and uneven shapes.
