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.
