Takatori Yuko Guinomi


We have run out of stock for this item.

Similar to her mini vases, we encourage Takatori Yuko to go with her imagination when she is making these. Some are dark, subdued and mysterious, others have clouds of warabai glaze flowing across the inside. Every one of these is individual and never to be repeated.

  • 6cm Diameter, 4cm High approx.
  • Stoneware (see our Care Guide)
  • By Takatori Yuko, the youngest daughter of the Takatori Family, with 300 years and 14 generations of expertise in South West Japan

Takatori Kiln

The tea master Kobori Enshū valued Takatori ceramics for their subtle glazes and refined construction, and coined the phrase kireisabi to describe the appearance of patina which the Takatori family could achieve. 400 years later, the Takatori family is still going strong and their expertise is still apparent as soon as you see or hold any of their work. Despite all the tradition, the Takatori family are very open to experimenting and trying new glaze combinations and shapes and this has been a really fun process for both of us.

Their pieces seem so delicate, but the Takatori family fire their kiln at 1250 degrees which means all their mugs for example can be put in the dishwasher or microwave and are surprisingly resilient and can be used as everyday items. A lovely combination of beauty, utility, tradition and experimentation.
