2021 Just BACK IN STOCK! Kajiwara family has been working over the New Year holidays to deliver new batch of Acord and Mushroom cups! Then Japan got hit by a big snow storm, with quite some snow dumped on to the Koishiwara mountain delaying delviery. Well, all is good now! These are small-batch hand-made, and so inventory is small! Order yours now.
"Donguri" means Acorn in Japanese. Each cup is hand-thrown by 14th generation Ceramist Mr. Kajiwara at Yamamaru kiln. The infamous signature "tobikanna" (chattering pattern) of Koishwara-ware was creatively applied to the lid to create the acorn motif when white slip is being scraped off. Koishiwara artisan takes pride in and respect local raw material, which plays an important part in nurturing this 350-year-old craft tradition.
This cup is perfect for a cortado or macchiato, also great for pudding, ice-cream, or the popular Japanese "chawan mushi" savory steamed egg custard.
* Specification may varies due to the nature of hand-made product. Each product is unique.
