Soba Choko Cup by Kenichiro Inoue

Sale price

Regular price $31.00
( / )

These soba choko type cups are by Kenichiro Inoue, a Kasama based ceramicist.

While his work is often defined by colour, this monochrome series is expressive in Inoue’s hand drawn designs.

By definition each design is unique, and are slightly graffiti-esque hieroglyphs on the surface of the work.

Soba choko have their original purpose as dipping vessels for noodles, but function well too as small coffee cups, or for miniature presentations of nuts and snacks.

(While pictured here in pairs, the cups are sold individually).

The cups are around 7cm in height and 9cm in diameter.  They weigh 175g, and contain 165ml of liquid.

About Kenichiro Inoue

Kenichiro Inoue bases his work on a dedication to vivid pattern. Boldly painted fish and flowers stand out across the surface of this hand-painted pottery. A practising potter in Kasama since 1984, Inoue’s work has lost none of its impact. If anything this patterns are becoming more bold, and match his cheerful status in the local ceramics scene. None of this is to belie to quality of his skilfully made ceramics, which have received recognition in Japan and overseas.
