Unique Piece | Handcrafted in Nagato, Japan
The Hagi-ware for the Connoisseurs
This Guinomi is an exemplary work of Hagi ware, overlaid with rosy tan and handcrafted by the master ceramist of Hagiyaki pottery, Sakakura Shinbei XIV. As the descendent of Korean Hagi potter Li Shao Guang, who started the culture of Hagi ware in Japan in 1604, Shinbei carries not only the fascinating heritage but also the true essence of Hagiyaki. In 1972 Sakakura Shinbei XIV was appointed an Important Human Cultural Treasure of Yamaguchi Prefecture. The Guinomi bears the artist's seal on its base.
