Handmade by Toshiyuki Sakai in Kasama, Japan

 

Handthrown mug in stoneware. The form is bold and the glaze is sophisticated. Thick handle makes for a comfortable hold.

 

During the higher temperature part of the firing process, salt is thorwn into the kiln. Chemical reactions occur and form a glassy coating of sodium silicate on each of the pot. 

 

Dimensions: w-13.5cm x d-10cm x h-9cm

Volume: 290ml

 

As all products are handmade sizes and colour may vary slightly

 

Toshiyuki Sakai uses a special combination of glazing and traditional wood firing to create his pieces, the exact method of which is a fiercely guarded family secret.
