This year's Father's Day, why not give him a special gift?
We would like to introduce Akio Momota's works, which have transparent white skin and a cool pale blue glaze, which you will want in the hot summer.
Akio Momota (in blue Akatsuki) is a ceramic maker based in Arita Town, Saga Prefecture. He has many customers from overseas, and is a popular artist who has even been featured in Kateigaho. The elegant form of the white porcelain is attractive with its pale blue color and the abstract design drawn with glaze on the pure white base. All of the works have an elegant and dignified appearance, but they also give a strange feeling of softness and warmth. Most of the pieces are one-of-a-kind pieces made on a potter's wheel.
Here are some creative and stylish pieces that are recommended as Father's Day gifts.
This is an adorable espresso cup. The small handle is also designed to be easy to hold with your fingertips. A stylish espresso cup that perfectly combines tradition and modernity. This time, we asked Mr. Momota to specially exhibit a few of his works. *Capacity: Approximately 30-40ml (cc) per cup
Blue and white porcelain with a beautiful pale blue glaze. It has a gentle, rounded shape that is moist and comfortable to the touch. The single spouted form is a size that is easy to hold, has a moderate weight in the hand and a sense of stability, and can hold about 1 cup of alcohol. The sharpness of the spout is also perfect. Please enjoy it as a set with single spouted form.
The smooth pale blue glaze that is unique to Momota is attractive. It has an elegant appearance, but the pool of glaze around the waist creates an indescribable scenery, giving it a mysterious sense of softness and warmth. The edges are thinly drawn using outstanding potter's wheel technique and are smooth to the touch. It can be used for a wide variety of purposes, including tea and coffee, as well as alcohol on the rocks.
The design is abstractly drawn with glaze on pure white porcelain, giving it a traditional yet modern feel. You will be captivated by the one-of-a-kind design created by the outstanding potter's wheel technique and chance. It is also recommended as a plate that looks great on Instagram. *1 set of 2 pieces with a diameter of 16 cm (approximately 5 inches)
Gift boxes and message cards are also available. (The espresso cup and sake set will be sent in a paulownia wood box with Mr. Momota's signature.)
