You don't find many cylindrical sake cups like this - especially with such a tactile, coarse unglazed, exterior. Judging from the markings on the outside, it looks like this cup was hand-formed rather than thrown, which is also unusual. Nikaido Akihiro is based near Mashiko village and is making a name for himself as a modern ceramicist.
