An impressive black mug handmade by Japanese potter Keiichi Tanaka at his studio in Kawagoe, a city located just outside Tokyo. This is a tall cup with a quirky handle and surface texture to finish, using his hand to gently press against the handle and the bottom section of the mug. It's a highly functional mug that can be used for hot drinks, and it also has a nice metallic glaze.
He achieves this by applying a metal-infused glaze and firing at 1200°C, then applying other pigments and firing again at a lower temperature. This is certainly a quirky piece that is sure to turn a few heads.
Note: These are made by hand so each one may differ slightly from the photo, they all have their own character.Approx Measurements: 10.5cm Diameter, 7cm Height
