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. This one holds about 260 ml.
Iron contained in the clay rises to the surface giving the impression of a quail egg. The earthen, matte finish references Karatsu’s sandy, rough soil. Enjoy the mineral rich warmth of its appearance at the table.
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.
