Tea is best when shared with a loved one. Often referred to as a 'married couple' set, this pair of teacups are slightly different in size. The thin, tall shape and bright blue glaze match perfectly. 

Although the cups are blue, only the kiln's signature white ash glaze was used. A thick layer of the ash glaze interacts with the iron in the clay body to create this vivid blue tone.

SENRYUZAN KILN
Senryuzan Kiln was founded just before the end of the Edo period in 1826. Since then, it has honoured the traditional spirit and culture of Hagi yaki. Now, led by Akira Yoshiga, Senryuzan Kiln continues to practice traditional methods of the craft. On our most recent visit to Hagi, we joined Yoshiga-san for a tour through their studios and museum. The small team of artists make their own clays and glazes using traditional techniques and continue to carefully craft each piece on kick wheels. Each of these traditional practices are symbolic of Senryuzan Kiln's approach to Hagi yaki.
