Aratsuchi Mug


Following on from the popular aratsuchi sake cups we have these imposing mugs in the same style for the Tatsumi kiln. After firing, Naganuma san coats the clay in a fresh layer of rough clay and fires it again to achive this effect. 

Meet the Maker:

Tatsumi Kiln

Naganuma san is a force of nature. He has the energy to have a
wood-fired noborigama and anagama - and he fires them regularly by
himself. This is a huge amount of work for one person by itself. He also finds and digs his own clay, makes his own glazes and grows his own rice. No wonder he describes himself as "made of fire and earth". Despite all his skill and technical ability, he still refuses to consider himself an artist - just a potter.
