Using a katakuchi (sake server) and a guinomi (sake cup) makes the experience of drinking sake so much richer. In Japan we share sake by pouring for each other from a katakuchi. For us this is a form of communication. Enjoying sake little by little from a small cup makes for a very relaxing evening. It is also useful for as a water cooler for tea or to serve sauces and dressings.
Before firing white slip is applied underneath a coat of ash glaze. The slip seeps into into the white clay producing a random crackle pattern that doesn’t compromise the glaze integrity. Please enjoy the natural appearance of each spontaneous line.
Hanako makes each piece by hand, one by one. Slight variations in size, shape, color, and surface are inherent to the process. We hope you will embrace these small differences as characteristics that give each piece individuality and character, making them all the more lovable.
