A ceramic cup by Japanese artist Yu Kobayashi.
Glazed in three choices:
1. crackled matte black
2. crackled matte white
3. crackled matte black (white inside)
These great primitive cups look as though they have been dug up in an archaeologist's dig. Lovely to hold in the hand and drink your favourite steaming tea.
SIZE: 13 x 10 cm
We first collaborated with the renowned Japanese ceramic artist, Yu Kobayashi in 2013, when we invited her to visit us to talk about her work. Since then we have launched several online collections, hosted an exhibition, worked with The World of Interiors magazine to feature her home and studio in Makinohara and made a short film of her work.
"With the playfulness of an outsider artist, yet with the skill and understanding of a highly crafted ceramicist - her work is surprising and unique, referencing ancient cultures from Japan to Africa"
