A small drinking cup made of unofu white glaze on red clay. The ash gray or brownish off-white color is a beauty reminiscent of European antique engravings.

The lovely shape of the lip that spreads outward, the dripping glaze on the rim, and the circle pattern that looks like a picture frame, all of which are enchantingly beautiful wherever you look.

The mouthpiece is slightly curved outward, so it feels like your index finger and thumb are naturally caught in it, making it easy to hold. In addition, the texture is gentle and smooth.

Recommended maintenance method from Ruriame Koubou

〇 You can use the microwave oven and dishwasher, but please be careful not to put too much strain on the container.
〇 If you put too much dark-colored drink in a cup with a white inside, the color will gradually transfer. You can prevent discoloration to some extent by sealing with rice water.
(How to care for the water that has been washed with rice)
1. Prepare a thin paste made by simmering rice water.
2. Put the prepared water into the bowl and soak for 1-2 hours.
3. After that, rinse off the water, wipe it off, and wash the container with water.
*We do not recommend using rice water on the colored glaze, as it may cause discoloration.

〇To prevent mold, please dry the container completely after washing before putting it away.

Understanding of "Utsuwa"
〇Because each product is handmade, there may be individual differences in color, shape, pattern, size, thickness, weight, etc. Also, even with the same glaze and clay, uneven colors and shading will appear.
〇Because the painting is also hand-painted one by one, the expression may differ.
〇 Depending on the product, there may be small holes, small black dots, line scratches, protrusions, pinholes, rattling, or distortion due to the manufacturing process.
〇 We have processed the image of the product so that the color is as close to the real thing as possible, but the color and texture may look different depending on the display screen of your computer or smartphone.
〇In our shop, we not only inspect the manufacturer, pottery, and artist, but also deliver products that have passed the final inspection at our store.
〇 Product photos are sample shots, so the items you receive will not be the same in detail.
〇 We do not accept returns or exchanges due to customer's convenience. Please purchase after understanding and acknowledging this.
〇 We would be happy if you could enjoy the “taste” and “interest” of handmade products that are not found in factory mass-produced products!
