akatori Hassen XIII (Takatori Sousen) Cup Takatori-Yaki HS11
Artistic tasteful cup - rough, rustic, wild, like real nature.
This cup is called "Ishihaze," which is a term related to a special kind of aesthetics seen in Japanese tea and flower containers linked with Wabi-Sabi. Ishihaze captures a rugged and rough look on the surface, as if stones within the earth have burst out like an explosion. It gives a feeling of a natural landscape and a texture that's quite unique, reflecting a sense of simple beauty and roughness.
This cup has 2 different glazing applied.
Milky white clay is straw ash glaze which Hassen made by burning straw.
Yellowish glaze is called candy glaze (Ameyu glaze) which shows beautiful shade of brown. The harmony and contrast of the those two glazes is attracting. Both glaze are Hassen's blend.
The clay is a unique blend of Hassen XIII.
Most of the clay is from Koishiwara and Nanakuma in Fukuoka prefecture (whereHassen kiln is located)
