Shirotae - Porcelain White - Coffee Cup and Saucer

SKU: TSKG30101 W76 D99 H60


Starting in 1998, this cup was crafted by hand on the potter’s wheel by a Kiyomizu ware artisan. It started as a pure white coffee cup and saucer, made by an artisan who excels in the painting style of the Kyoto Kiyomizu wares. For us, they created a product without any paintings, covered simply with transparent glaze. Years later, when changing the size of the cup, we shifted production to a Nagasaki Hasami ware pottery. Eventually, we arrived at the current shape. From this simple coffee cup adorned with minute details, we developed a line-up that includes a teacup, demitasse cup, sugar pot and pitcher. Since production began in Kyoto, we have pursued a lasting design. In 2016, nearly 20 years later, this cup received the Good Design Award in Japan. It embodies the importance of continuous creation and lasting design. Hold it and you can feel the lightness and thinness of the porcelain, the subtleness of the handle and the daintiness of the rim. This line is available in two types: plain white porcelain and beaten silver, which gains a deeper elegance with the passage of time.
