An impressive black mug handmade by Japanese potter Keiichi Tanaka at his studio in Kawagoe, a city located just outside Tokyo. This is a small cup with a circular loop hole for a handle, giving off some architectural vibes. It's easy to fit your finger through and is functional for small drinks, it also has a nice surface texture and a metallic glaze finish.
He achieves this unique colour 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 heads.
Note: These are made by hand so each one may differ slightly from the photo, they all have their own character.Approx Measurements: 6.5cm Diameter, 6.5cm Height
