We use the rare clay that our ancestors used about 400 years ago, the clay from Kitahata Hieda, the birthplace of Karatsu ware. Madara Karatsu is characterized by a straw ash glaze (white cloudy glaze) applied to the sandy, coarse soil, which is characterized by mottled spots, and its overall white and soft skin is attractive. One of the highlights is the scraped marks on the high ground that stand out, giving it a unique earthy texture. 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.
