Ginsai Sakazuki (Cup)

Artist: Kenji Omori
4,000 yen ($36.80 USD)

Potter Kenji Omori known for his larger sculptural objects produced this series of small vessels 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. Sakazuki are traditionally a flat wide-mouthed sake cup favored for use on ceremonial occasions.

The cup's silver interior will tarnish and take on a lovely warm lustre over time but can be returned to its original condition if desired by polishing with a small amount of toothpaste on a soft cloth.
