description

A classic sake cup in characteristic earthy dark red colors. This sake cup is is fired unglazed at very high temperature in large wood-fueled kilns which is called a noborigama (climbing kiln). The climbing kiln is burning almost a thousand bundles of wood over several days to bring out the unique personalities of Tanba clay, which is renowned for its rich texture and deep purplish brown colors.

Tanba Ware is one of the oldest kilns in Japan. It is also called Tanbatachikui Ware; but most people shorten it. Tanba arts are made with clays that are rich in iron, from the Tanbasasayama area. Tanba has long been praised by many ceramic lovers.
