Kumagai Nanban Sake set $150.00

The tradition of pottery in Kyoto, Japan extends back to the late fifth century, but the Kyo-yaki style the area is known for began to flourish in the 16th century—when Kyoto became an epicenter for politics and merchant business.

Tea ceremonies were increasing in popularity at the time and so was the demand for tea sets, which caused throngs or artisans to come to Kyoto from across Japan. Kumagai has been producing this elegant, minimalist earthenware pottery for nearly a century, honoring the traditional aesthetic and techniques taken from these artisans.
