This Hagi yaki cup resembles the shape of a matcha tea bowl, or chawan. Slightly smaller in size to a chawan bowl, this cup is suitable for a wide range of drinks including tea, coffee, and cold drinks. 

Each piece of Matsuno-san's Hakeme series is delicately crafted by hand and can be distinguished by the white glaze brush stroke adorned on the exterior. The pieces in the series feature several orange spots referred to as maple leaves or Momiji. 

Height: 70mm

As each item is handmade, slight size, spotting and colour variations may exist between items.

Handcrafted in Hagi


SOHEI MATSUNO
Perched on a quiet street overlooking a field of rice paddies, Sohei Matsuno's gallery and studio is home to an exquisite array of Hagi yaki styles. Adding a contemporary approach to this traditional form, Matsuno-san's work features glaze colours not traditionally seen in Hagi yaki. Alongside his traditional works, it is not uncommon to find deep ruby reds, bright blues and greens, and even his signature mauve glaze. We had the pleasure of meeting Matsuno-san and learning about his studio on our recent visit to Hagi. Previously his father's studio, home to six working artists, Matsuno-san now works on his own, regularly filling the large studio with students in his ceramic classes. His father's work can still be seen on display in their traditional climbing kiln alongside the studio.
