A distinctive feature of Kawakujira is the black rim around the mouth. The origin of “Kawakujira” is that the black edge of the mouth is likened to the skin of a whale (the back), and the white of the body of the vessel is likened to the body (belly) of a whale. One of the highlights is the black candy glaze flowing gently from the rim of the mouth, reminiscent of Korean Karatsu. How about a teacup with the dynamic movement of clay that is unique to Karatsu ware and the soft texture that can only be achieved with earthenware, giving a sense of warmth to your everyday dining table? Part of the fun is seeing the texture change as you use it. It can also be used to mix shochu with water or hot water.
