Another beauty from Kiyomi Koide. The chocolate stoneware clay exterior is completely unglazed, giving it an earthy, rough-hewn feeling that captures a certain matcha mood. Interior is a gorgeous, mottled, wabisabi glaze. 4" tall, 3" diameter. Made in Berkeley, California.
Everything at Breakaway Matcha is quality and this cup is no exception. My fine china has been pushed to the side while I relish the heft, the rustic beauty of this piece. It is a piece more than a cup, a piece of art.
I purchased this mug as a birthday gift for a friend and could not be happier. It feels so incredible in the hand and has a nice curvature so that it fits well in the hand. Friend loved it! Great texture, great color, love everything about this. Made our homemade matcha experience a delight. Don't hesitate, get this one. Photographs well too. :)
Truly a gem of a cup. The rough, raw surface is satisfying not only to the hands, but to the eyes. Contrast of earthy chocolate ceramic to vibrant green of matcha is mesmerizing. I will be using this cup for years to come.
