Indigo Marumon (Circle) Patterned Sobachoko Cup by Tōsai-gama

These hand painted sobachoko cups are from the Kotobe range by Tōsai-gama.  The original purpose of sobachoko is as mixing containers for noodles, but their size means that they for example can be used as vessels for sauces, or a morning expresso.

Tōsai-gama is the kiln of the Nagato family, based in the Tobe-ware ceramic region of Ehime.  Tobe-ware is one of Japan’s traditions in white ceramics, historically known for the ‘sometsuke’ style of blue pigment designs on pale surfaces.  Kotobe meaning old-Tobe is a series that references some of the classic patterns that may have been found in the 18-19th century iterations of these Ehime white ceramics.   However, as with much of Tōsai-gama’s work, these designs are placed in a new context of form and material.  Exploring the contemporary possibilities of their ceramic genre, the kiln makes pleasingly stylish pieces for the home.

As the pieces are hand painted and handmade there may be some differences between them.
