Delivery times may be longer than usual

Although mail items to the United States from Japan are currently being accepted, it is expected to take more than two to three weeks to load the items that have already been accepted on airplanes to that country due to the significant reduction and suspension of flights.
We sincerely apologize that delivery will take more time than usual. It would be appreciated if you would kindly understand this situation in advance.

description

Inside of the ochoko (sake cup) is colored with brilliant red. Red is one of the most difficult colors to achieve in ceramic glazes.

Tanbun Kiln is now owned by the third generation. As the shape resembles a snake, the kiln is also known by the nick-name "Hebi gama" (Snake kiln). It is fired 4-5 times annually and produces unique items with a natural glaze.

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.
