Gagyu guinomi sake cup - Fringed orchid

Using a 250 year old brush technique reintroduced by his father, the 13th generation traditional craftsman Yokoishi Gagyu has created this delightful guinomi sake cup graced with a dignified heron. Slip is brushed across the red clay surface of the cup to produce a marbled effect, reminiscent of waves, long grass or even rice stalks swaying in the breeze. The heron is a trademark of this particular artist and is hand drawn with a stately realism.
