Heüge TEA CUP | Setoguro
A teacup in the form of standing straight. This elongated cup, which has been familiar to Japanese people for a long time, can be used as easily as a small mug.
A simple but tasty teacup should become a staple of the dining table.
The pottery of the Momoyama period, which is also called "drawer black" or "Tenssho black", depending on the way it was baked.
It can be said that its characteristic is a jet-black glaze with a deep depth that is completely transparent so that you cannot tell the color of the base material.
In order to make Seto Kuro that can be widely used on the modern dining table, we used modern glaze formulation and technology instead of the same technique as in the past, and expressed glossy, truly black.
Please enjoy the contrast between the black-colored bowls and the colorful ingredients that cannot be found anywhere else.

-Since we use a glaze that easily drips and becomes uneven, there is no single vessel with the same expression. Please enjoy the scenery of the glaze on the vessel.
-Since coarse soil is used, there may be roughness or small holes on the surface or edges of the vessel.
-The surface of the glaze may have black spots or the base material may be reddish, but this is due to the iron powder in the kiln and the iron contained in the soil. There is no problem in use.
-There are some that have fine cracks (penetration) on the surface at the time of purchase, and some that have intrusion as you use it, but there is no problem in using it.
◎ Penetration occurs because the shrinkage rate of soil and glaze is different when the vessel cools and shrinks for about a month after leaving the kiln. When the intrusion comes in, there is a high, small noise. The sound gradually disappears, but the intrusion continues. Please enjoy the piercing sound like an iron koto when you start using it.
