Mug Black Yakijime
A mug cup made from the same clay as the teapot and with the same yakishime method.
The same mold is used, and the same body has a handle.
Yakijime has a fine, matte texture that feels like an earthen material. Not only hot drinks, but also cold drinks go well with the finely baked clay.
It is called stoneware, and is intermediate in quality between pottery and porcelain. It is denser and stronger than pottery, and has almost no water absorption. When struck, it makes a metallic sound similar to porcelain, but the firing temperature is lower than that of porcelain and it is not translucent. The surface is smooth, but there are fine unevenness on the surface, just between pottery and porcelain. This potter's clay contains a lot of iron, and has long been used for teapots. Using this clay, the iron is baked in a method that makes the iron black without applying glaze. There are two colors, "black" and "white".
The color is not the glaze, but the color of the clay and firing. By using it, the luster and depth of color will increase. This is also one of the pleasures of using it.
Mug cups come in various sizes, but they are rather compact rather than full.
Produced by Nankei Touen, a kiln in Yokkaichi City, Mie Prefecture that specializes in teapots and tea utensils. Due to the nature of the clay used, it has excellent heat resistance, and teapots and earthenware pots that take advantage of its heat resistance are popular.

The texture of the baked earth and metal, and the feeling of layering simple parts create a pleasant tension that stretches your spine. Of course there is a sense of stability, so don't worry. Recommended for those who want to enjoy the time to brew coffee slowly rather than wanting to drink coffee quickly.
Please enjoy the minimal design and the texture and aging of each clay and brass.
