kohiki cups

Content of the cup:
65-85 ml

Author:
Czech potter Jiri Duchek makes ceramics for 25 years, his skills, creativity, a dedication to study the history of ceramic arts, collecting old antique ceramics and reconstructing old ways of making pottery, collecting and making his own local clays and own glazes, firing his pottery in woodfiring kilns, his dedication to make his pottery entirely from locally sourced materials, locally meaning within the countryside he lives, all and many more features make this man the master of pottery craft.

About:
I asked Jiri to make these cups as I find them very special, for drinking, for seasoning, for their special features. Their are very similar in size and in shape still they are different.

The tea cups show 'wet' colour effect, when its wet it will change its colour. This teaware is called kohiki. This teaware also makes the tea taste less bitter.

Please watch this video from 7:22 minute why this is happening. Also notice in this video how the old tea bowls cracks get coloured and showing as a snake skin pattern. Absolutely stunning. Such teaware was back in time in Japan very highly priced.

Quantity produced:
The cups were made in a batch of about 24 pieces. Each cup reflects potters mood/idea/thought, it's not drawn beforehand, it's made only at that moment, here and now, once made, once fired and  maybe used for your lifetime.
