adorable expression

A bear with an open mouth and a blank face. The expression on his face as if he wants to say something is adorable, and just looking at it makes you feel warm and soothed.

Mikiko Kato's Kuma Mug Black Bear

ancient essence

She loves the shapes and decorated creatures of the ancient Orient and the Jomon period, and is fascinated by facial expressions that make it difficult to understand what they are thinking and unintentional funny gestures. It has an indescribable cuteness that seems to be a mixture of ancient and modern essences.

Mikiko Kato's Kuma Mug Black Bear

I feel happy just looking at it

Each piece of fur is hand-carved, giving it a very realistic feel. At the bear farm, he keeps observing the bears' various movements and expressions. Perhaps it is this strong curiosity that gives rise to the indescribable charm on his face.

Mikiko Kato's pottery
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 Mikiko Kato
〇It has been sealed, so you can use it as is.〇Powdered containers are made of three layers: fabric, clay, and glaze, and due to their nature, they are prone to chipping. When handling, please be careful not to hit the edges of the mouth.

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.
