Why Choose a Coffee Mug from Kyoto?

Kiyomizu-yaki (清水焼) and Kyo-yaki (京焼) ceramics have enjoyed over four centuries of history. The names refer to pottery produced around Higashiyama in Kyoto, or within the wider city area. Kyoto ware is today a highly valued and government-designated traditional Japanese craft. Since Kyoto was long the seat of Japan’s Imperial Court, Kyoto ware is renowned for its stately elegance and ornate decoration.

Kyoto ware is mostly handmade in small quantities. It is especially prized for its exquisite hand-painted ceramics. These intricately drawn designs often depict the graceful scenery of Kyoto’s four seasons as well as reproducing other masterpieces in pottery form. These are highly decorative works of art that showcase classic luxury that are rarely found anywhere else in Japan.

Mori Shunji (Shunzan Kiln) is a third-generation artist who has received numerous awards at prestigious exhibitions such as the Nitten and Japan Ceramic Art Exhibition. He studied under the tutelage of masters Miyashita Zenju and Yoshiji, and is a certified Traditional Craftsman of Kyo-yaki and Kiyomizu-yaki.

Caring For Your Kyoto Ware Coffee Mug

After use, the coffee mug should be rinsed thoroughly with hot water, which will help it to dry faster. Do not use in the dishwasher.
