Shopping guide
A low, round-shaped cup. 

The earth used is from Izumo, the capital of Shimane Prefecture in south-western Japan. Izumo is a city famous for its main shrine, where it is said that every year all the gods of Japan come to meet and talk about what they want to happen in the coming year.

This clay is thin and very flexible to work with, and has a strong red colour, which contrasts beautifully with the matt white glaze.

The piece has been made with an electric wheel, you can see the marks of the turning of the lathe on the walls of the piece.

It is a glass that can be used for drinking or for serving food, such as olives, pickled vegetables, sauces, etc. It can also be used to store small objects, such as earrings, keys, rubber bands...
