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.
Since I started living in Maine, I became particularly intrigued by the color blue. There, the air is clear and the light enriches the colors of nature. The color of the sea and sky are ever changing.
This color varies depending on its location in the kiln and I gave it the American name Blue Jeans to celebrate the wide variety of shades. It’s an unusual color and well loved.
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.
