Kohiki is a traditional technique named for its “white color that looks like powder”. Also called “white makeup”, this technique was originally developed to make red clay appear white, creating a unique texture. After firing, light pink flecks may occasionally appear after firing, and this piece shows it well. Each time you use a sake cup, the depth of its flavor increases. Enjoy the fun of growing your own pottery.
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. Due to the nature of powder coating, it may seem like it stains more quickly than other glazes. If you are concerned about this, please soak it in water and wipe off the moisture before use.
