A traditional Japanese teacup shape in Keishugama's lovely deep brown glaze with the lower half of the cup unglazed and decorated with some very fine tobikanna decoration. Light and delicate in the hand with a nice texture from the exposed clay.
Kajiwara san grew up surrounded by pottery in Tōhō village and has taken up the challenge of how to re-invigorate traditional shapes and decoration. He experimented with different glazes and shapes until he settled on his signature white rice husk ash and brown ameyu glazes which he uses for practical tableware including the versatile Ōhitsu container. His glazes have a real depth of colour and texture which combined with simple shapes and decoration make his work really appealing.
