Bird Design Mug by Takahiro Manome

This mug is by ceramicist Takahiro Manome, and features his trademark bird motif.  Engraved into the surface of his work with a zogan technique, this bird design is something Manome happened upon, and that he frequently returns to.  He imagines it as somehow, the bearer of something positive.

The mug overall is achieved in a kohiki style, with a layer of light slip over the base clay giving texture to the piece.  Each mug is handmade and individually created by Manome in his studio, with slight differences between them.

Size: Diameter: 12cm, Width: 8.6cm, Height: 8cm.

Weight: 240g

About Takahiro Manone

A winding road on a mountain side that slowly becomes too narrow for a car to pass, Takahiro Manomeis in one sense isolated. In another, he is integral to the current generation of Kasama potters. The impetus to connect Kasama’s sometimes disparate ceramicist community came from the earthquake of 
2011, when Manome, from his mountain side, drove an initiative to repair one another’s kilns. Slow and deliberate in his speech, Manome’s context in his distant atelier full of art books and pottery shelves, has perhaps left him a little unaccustomed to interaction. But his work, like his other initiatives to connect, shows a spirit of exploration, and an essential friendliness to its user. It balances an elemental sense of its material, with soft glazes and sensitive forms. A kindpresence in the Kasama pottery scene, the work of Takahiro Manome can take a similar role in the home.
