Matte Blue Mug

by Takeshi Ohmura

A matte blue mug by Japanese potter Takeshi Ohmura. This particular piece is a simple looking mug that narrows and tapers in slightly. The handle is looping, making it perfect to use on a daily basis.

Ohmura is quite well known for his unusual surfaces, which are often glazed matte with one flat colour running throughout. In this case the mug has a hint of blue layered on top of a black glaze, this black glaze can be seen on the inner of the cup. It's a subtle, but also striking, design.

Note: These are made by hand so each one may differ slightly from the photo, they all have their own character.
