A simple mug with a rich Ameyu or amber glaze just dripping over the top of the rim - enough weight to sit nicely in the hand but not too chunky. Thrown from local clay and fired in a traditional wood-fired noborigama kiln by Naganuma san.
- 8cm Diameter, 10cm High
- Earthenware, Dishwasher and microwave safe (see our Care Guide)
- Hand-made at the Tatsumi Kiln in Fukuoka prefecture on Kyūshū
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.
