Made in Japan
These teacups are made by Yuko Ikeda, a Japanese ceramic artist. Individually thrown and glazed in special recipe developed by herself.
The uniqueness of the glaze really caught my attention first. Yuko is very experimental and playful with the way she uses her glaze mix. She applies them as if she paints on the forms she creates. The end results will never be the same. It makes sense to know she joined a glaze research group for a while where she gathered all kinds of information about glazes. Her experience there gave a huge influence on the glazing methods she uses now.
Living near the sea, she often takes inspiration from it and what it offers. Seashells are often used as part of her glazing process adding beautiful character to her pieces. Yuko's tablewares are work of art while also enriching our daily lives as a functional wares.
- For the first time using it, just wash with dishwashing liquid and rinse.
- With pale coloured wares, colour of food or liquid may stain them with use.
- Depending on the glaze, they may develop beautiful crazing pattern.
- Using metal utensils may leave pencil line like scratch on the surface. Use wooden utensils where possible.
- Do not use it in the microwave nor in the dishwasher.
