Kumidashi Tea Cup by Marumi Kujirai
These cups were completed in a new off-white glaze by the Kasama based ceramicist Marumi Kujirai.
In the kumidashi style, they open to form a rim that rests on the lip when drinking tea or coffee.
On closer look the white contains layers of shade beneath it, and as with Kujirai’s other work has a depth of appeal in colour and form.
As each is made individually, there are slight variations between them.
The approximate dimensions are:
Size: Φ9.3cm, Height 6.7cm
