This lovely teacup features one of Hokujo’s trademark styles -a matte finish featuring colors of brown and rose wound around the piece in a circular pattering adding depth and richness to the visual appearance.
A wonderful small and light-weight teacup for a self-purchase or a special gift to a Japanese green tea lover.
Hokujo was born in 1945 and in 1994 he was certified as a Master of Traditional Craftsman. In 2013 his status was elevated again to Tokoname City Human Cultural Asset.
This is a handmade item – slight variations in the painting, colors, tooling, patterning and kiln effects of Chinese and Japanese teawares are to be expected. We have carefully photographed this item as best as possible – please be aware that different device screens can render colors and subtle tones slightly differently.
