Description

Kohiki is a type of high-fired stoneware developed in Japan by Korean potters in the 1500s.  It was used extensively by tea ceremony practitioners of the time who found its simple, rustic charm well suited to the principles of chanoyu tea ceremony.  The glaze is characterized by flashes of pastel orange and pink which form during reduction firing - a narrow window in which oxygen is sapped out of its ash slip.

This kohiki cup by Wada Tōzan makes a fine addition to any saké vessel collection.
