Because each piece is handmade, there are individual differences in color, shape, size, weight, uneven coloring, uneven baking, uneven glaze/glaze pools, and subtle differences in the pattern . In addition, there may be differences in the degree of glaze application, fading, pinholes, and iron powder (sunspots), 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.
