Modern Mashiko Coffee Mug


This item is currently out of stock

Beautiful tableware from the famous Japanese pottery town of Mashiko. Mashiko was once home to Shōji Hamada, celebrated ceramicist and founding member of the Mingei (folk craft) Movement, who through Bernard Leach shaped modern-day studio pottery in Japan and the UK.

This piece is by Sayado Wadagama, a highly regarded kiln operating today in this respected pottery enclave. It’s true to Mashiko’s Mingei origins: warm, solid, deceptively modest in design and intended for everyday life.

Sayado Wadagama have also remained faithful to the mid century aesthetic and Mashiko’s traditional glazes. These mugs from their ‘Reason’ collection have been glazed in black with Mashiko's original celadon, which has a slightly matte texture. The colours blend into one another, each piece unique depending on the climate and temperature in the kiln.

It’s rare to find such a fine example of Mashiko pottery outside of Japan, drawing upon its long and distinguished history.

Measures approx. 8cm tall.

For longevity we recommend washing by hand and drying after use. Please do not use in the microwave or dishwasher.
