Along with the warmth of handcraftsmanship, this item also shows the strength of the clay itself. Bizen ware has fine pores in its uneven surface and is breathable, which helps to mellow the taste of coffee. The coffee cup and saucer can be used as a mug and the saucer as a plate for serving tea.

Bizen ware cup and saucer with a thousand-year history

Coffee Cup & Saucer Feature 1

Bizen Pottery with a Thousand Year History

Bizen ware coffee cup and saucer, pottery made in Bizen City, Okayama Prefecture, Japan. Bizen ware is one of the six oldest kilns in Japan and is a traditional craft with a thousand-year history.

Bizen Pottery has a warm flavor that lets you feel the texture of high-quality clay as it is, and is simple yet powerful in nature. Since Bizen Pottery is fired without glaze and without painting, its color and surface change depending on the conditions inside the kiln during firing.

The potter who produced this coffee cup and saucer, Tsuneki Naoto, uses an anagama kiln instead of a climbing kiln, which produces a brighter orange color than most Bizen ware. The charm of Bizen ware, which can express various hues depending on the way the kiln is fired, is fully utilized.

All of them are one-of-a-kind! Bizen Pottery with a unique character that no two are alike!

All of them are one-of-a-kind! Bizen Pottery with a unique character that no two are alike!

Bizen Pottery is much favored by many people as a work of art. Due to the effects of the high heat and ashes during the firing process, no two pieces are ever the same. It can be said that the individuality of each piece is what makes it so valuable.

This coffee cup & saucer is similarly shaped and fired in the same way, but the expression of each piece is all different. You can enjoy Bizen ware as your own individuality.

Coffee Cup & Saucer Feature 3

Bizen ware with excellent properties as tableware

From the late Muromachi period (1333-1573), Bizen ware was favored as a tea ceremony utensil. Even today, a wide variety of tableware is produced using Bizen ware techniques. There are several reasons why Bizen ware is so useful as tableware, one of which is its high specific heat. It heats up easily and does not cool down easily, allowing you to enjoy warm drinks while they are still warm. This coffee cup and saucer is also suitable for slowly serving warm drinks such as coffee or tea.

In addition, because Bizen ware is fired without glaze, the uneven surface has microscopic pores and is breathable. This air permeability has the effect of mellowing the taste of coffee and making it more delicious.

Other advantages include the uneven surface of a beer tumbler, which keeps beer bubbles fine and aroma fresh, and a plate, which prevents water from evaporating and food from drying out. Bizen Pottery, which can be used in everyday life, has many advantages that are made possible by the natural power of high-quality clay.

Sturdy Bizen ware cup and saucer that you will want to use every day

Detail of coffee cup & saucer1

Durable items that you will want to use every day

The coffee cup has a rounded shape with a diameter of approximately 8 cm and a height of approximately 7 cm, making it easy to hold in both hands and very comfortable to use. The saucer is approximately 15 cm in diameter, which is large enough to hold a spoon, sugar, and other necessary items.

Bizen ware is fired at high temperatures for a long time, so it is said to be so strong that it will not crack even if thrown. It may seem a little tricky to use delicately made porcelain cups and saucers every day, but with the sturdiness of Bizen ware, this is possible.

The cup weighs approximately 200g, which is about the same weight as a standard ceramic mug. Bizen ware is a heavy pottery, but Naoto Tsuneki tableware is not too heavy because it is thin and easy to handle for everyday use.

Bizen ware cup and saucer that can be used separately

Cups and saucers can be used separately.

The coffee cup and saucer can be used with the cup as a mug and the saucer as a plate for serving tea. Even when used separately, they do not destroy the atmosphere, but maintain their individuality and style, as one would expect from Bizen ware.

The saucer is also moderately deep, making it a useful item for serving daily dishes. It is nice to be able to choose various ways to use it depending on your ingenuity.

Coffee, tea, and Western sweets, or even green tea and Japanese sweets for a relaxing time at home, would go perfectly with the atmosphere. Please try to use it with your own ideas, taking advantage of the advantages unique to Japanese tableware.
