Iga-yaki is a pottery style that dates back over 1200 years. In the 17th century, this pottery type from the Mie Prefecture broadly influenced its era with vessels and vases used in tea ceremonies.
Nowadays, due to the high quality of its 3 million year old clay, Iga-yaki is mostly known for tableware such as earthen pots for everyday use. Especially because of their sturdiness and high heat resistance.
Tiny pebbles inside the gaerome clay give our cups their distinctive rough look. Glazed or unglazed - each of our cups has their own unique character.
Our Iga-yaki cups are made by the Mashino-kiln in Iga, Mie Prefecture.
