Shigaraki Yaki Shime Cups - Set of 2

The set includes two cups: one with a lustrous black fired finish that exhibits a captivating depth of colour, and another that enhances the set's sophistication with its gold adornments.

Both cups are the result of high-temperature firing, a characteristic process of Shigaraki ware, which leads to a natural glaze and warm earthy tones.

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.

Beautiful little things

My Japanese table ware arrived very quickly and were packed to perfection; I don’t think you could break them even if you tried 😉. I was kept well informed throughout the shipping process.
One small thing to work on is the true visual representation of the size of the object, that often appears much bigger than it actually is. The description of the balls and plates tells you the dimensions, but the photos are a bit misleading, sometimes.
Anyway, I am glad I was able to find and buy these beautiful 😍 little things.

Just what I wanted

I had some old wooden chopsticks that had seen better days, so wanted a new set. These are beautiful!
