Another beauty from Kiyomi Koide. The chocolate stoneware clay exterior is completely unglazed, giving it an earthy, rough-hewn feeling that captures a certain matcha mood. Interior is a gorgeous, mottled, wabisabi glaze. 4" tall, 3" diameter. Made in Berkeley, California.
I purchased this mug as a birthday gift for a friend and could not be happier. It feels so incredible in the hand and has a nice curvature so that it fits well in the hand. Friend loved it! Great texture, great color, love everything about this. Made our homemade matcha experience a delight. Don't hesitate, get this one. Photographs well too. :)
Truly a gem of a cup. The rough, raw surface is satisfying not only to the hands, but to the eyes. Contrast of earthy chocolate ceramic to vibrant green of matcha is mesmerizing. I will be using this cup for years to come.
