Rinka Sakazuki (Cup)

Artist: Kenji Omori
3,500 yen ($32.20 USD)

While potter Kenji Omori is best known for his large sculptural objects, he has recently produced this series of small vessels and tableware with the same emphasis on form and texture that he places on his larger work. Omori produced each piece in a red (akatsuchi) or black (kurotsuchi) clay with an unglazed exterior and a contrasting glazed interior. While sakazuki are traditionally a flat wide-mouthed sake cup favored for use on ceremonial occasions, Omori’s vessels can be used as small bowls or cups for any purpose.
