The Kumagai company was founded in 1935 and specializes in producing traditional Kyoto pottery (Kyoyaki-Kiyomizuyaki), a type of earthenware popular in Japan.
This elegant vessel, originally designed with sake in mind, would also provide a particularly fetching manner in which to serve roasted kukicha tea, over ice. Elegant and handsome, in the hand, for the eye, or on a shelf.
