The same shape as the half-glazed sake choko from Keishugama, but here the wood-firing gives a much more rustis feel. The speckles of ash in the bottom of the cups and the random fly-ash smears adds rough-hewn character to these choko. Katakuchi pourer available separately.

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.
