Conical Cup Matte Black

Nankei

Regular price $65.00

Japanese ceramic studio Nankei specialise in the production of these beautiful cups that can also be used for desserts. These are made from an iron rich clay body.

The clay is the reason Nankei are able to produce such a bowl without a glaze, naturally turning black during the firing and offering a smooth surface with tiny irregularities inside that mellow the taste of the tea and make it slightly less astringent.

This clay body does not absorb water and becomes more glossy with time. Depending on the drink or food used the clay body can stain.  A multifunctional piece with a minimalist aesthetic.

Please note: Each piece is handmade and may feature small markings from the making process.

Approx Dimensions:  8cm diameter x 6.2cm height (170ml). Material: Stoneware (ceramic), Unglazed. Handmade in Japan. Ships from the UK.

Blending centuries-old techniques with modern sensibilities.

Every Nankei teapot tells a story of heritage, craftsmanship, and the serene art of tea.
