Ayano Arai's Japanese paper-dyed duck mug

Light and soft Japanese paper dyeing

Washi dyeing is a traditional technique in Japan. Cut the washi paper into the shape of a picture, place it on the unglazed fabric, infuse it with the occupation, and decorate it. The shading and blurring that is unique to washi paper dyeing is indescribably wonderful.

Warm flower pattern

She started dyeing washi paper after working as an assistant for a ceramic artist. He said he began to think that it would be possible to express flower patterns that could not be done with slipwear. The calm and gentle colors make you feel comfortable.

When you've finished your housework and work, or when you're spending the holidays at home, relaxing and reading a book, the sight of the duck on the handle will bring a smile to your face.

Because each piece is handmade, there may be individual differences in color, shape, thickness, size, weight, uneven glaze, glaze pools, stone gaps, slight wobble, and patterns/patterns. In addition, there may be differences in the degree of glaze application, penetration, pinholes, and iron powder (black spots), but this does not cause any problems with use. Please enjoy the unique expression that can only be achieved by handmade products. Although you cannot choose which item you receive, we hope that you will look forward to receiving it. If you are interested, please feel free to contact us before shipping and we will email you a separate photo.

Recommended care methods and precautions from Ayano Arai
〇In order to use it for a long time, we recommend sealing it before use. 〇Please refrain from using gold-colored items in the microwave. Also, please note that the gold may peel off if you wash it too hard. We recommend washing with a soft sponge and a neutral kitchen detergent instead of using abrasives. After washing, please dry thoroughly before storing.

Understanding about “Utsuwa”
〇As each item is handmade, there may be individual differences in color, shape, pattern, size, thickness, weight, etc. Also, even with the same glaze or clay, uneven colors and shading will appear.
〇As each piece is hand-painted, the expression may vary.
〇Due to the manufacturing process, small holes, small black spots, line scratches, protrusions, pinholes, wobbles, and distortions may be seen depending on the product.
〇Product images are processed to be as close to the actual color as possible, but the color and texture may appear different depending on the display screen of your computer or smartphone.
〇At our store, we deliver products that have not only been inspected by the manufacturer, pottery, and artist, but also passed a final inspection at our store.
〇Product photos are sample photos, so the items you receive will not be the same in every detail.
〇We do not accept returns or exchanges due to customer convenience. Please understand and understand this before purchasing.
〇We would be happy if you could enjoy the ``taste'' and ``interest'' that are unique to handmade products that cannot be found in factory mass-produced products!
