|Suisho bori yunomi teacup
A very unusual lidded teacup from Hasami, Nagasaki prefecture. The small holes around the sides are individually punched out by hand to create a lacy pattern and then filled in with "secret crystal", a material whose exact properties are known only to the craftsmen of the kiln! When held up to the light, the holes sparkle, adding a lovely translucent quality to the white porcelain which is further offset by bands of sometsuke wave patterns.
A great way to enjoy the visual effect of the green tea in the cup as well as savoring the taste!
