Shinichi Kotsuji has trained in Shigarakiyaki ceramics for over 10 years. After founding his company, Kotsuji moved to Shiga as well as Kyoto to find the best ceramic style to express himself in. Now he works in Igayaki, using the local rough sandy clay from Iga in Mie prefecture, he is able to take advantage of the high iron content in the clay to produce black spots across the ceramic surface.
Kotsuji's ceramics are rugged yet refined, reflecting the Japanese countryside.
The lid of the cup is designed to fit snugly onto the cup, helping to keep the contents inside warm or cool as needed, but it can also be used as a saucer depending on the preferences.
