Ash Glazed Stoneware Yunomi

Ash Glazed Stoneware Yunomi

from 35.00

A yunomi (Japanese: 湯のみ) is a form of teacup, typically taller than wide, with a trimmed or turned foot. Unlike the more formal chawan tea bowl which is used during the Japanese tea ceremony, the yunomi is made for daily or informal tea drinking.

This medium sized yunomi is hand thrown from Cornish stoneware clay dug in St Agnes, England.  Fired to 1280-1300 degrees celsius in a gas fuelled kiln with a reduced oxygen atmosphere to obtain rich, earthy green glaze. 

The earliest wood ash glazes can be traced back to the Shang period in China (c. 1500 B.C.), and it is thought they were produced accidentally, the result of white-hot wood ash being carried through the kiln with the draft of the fire and settling onto the pots, where the searing white heat melted it to a glass. Three thousand years later wood ash remains an important and popular feature of pottery glaze making.

Due to high demand this product may take up to 2 weeks to dispatch.
