Asemi Artisan - Bizen-Yaki Cup
The Asemi collection is based on one design of stacking cups, using various different traditional Japanese methods of pottery. The Bizen-Yaki cups are represent the oldest form of Japanese pottery this company practices and each one is completely unique. Each Bizen-Yaki cup is a unique piece with the appearance varying from rough unglazed grey to smooth copper and brown. The grey look is achieved through a technique called “Sangiri”, in which charcoal is added close to the cups in the firing process.
Only 100 cups are fired every six months and currently we're the only stock lists in the UK of this design. An entirely special vessel, available in two sizes.
