Hori Karatsu is a technique unique to Karatsu ware, in which an x mark is carved into the clay while it is still soft after molding, and a feldspar glaze is applied. The highlight is the powerful carving pattern and Kairagi inside the carving. It is slightly smaller than Mr. Kojima's previous works, making it easier for women to handle. The more you use a sake cup, the more its flavor will change. Enjoy the process of growing and changing.
Karatsu ware has a rough base, so sudden temperature changes can cause it to crack and break. Avoid using microwaves and dishwashers as they can also damage the dishes.
