Tsuboyayaki: The southernmost Japanese prefecture, Okinawa, was once its own kingdom for more than five hundred years (1372 - 1879). The Ryukyu Kingdom and the society and culture that developed around it was a crossroads between Southeast Asia, China, Korea, and Japan. Tsuboyayaki or Tsuboya ware is the traditional pottery technique of the Ryukyu culture, and is well-known throughout Japan. Recently, the kilns of Okinawa have been so popular that they sell their products to retailers at markets held every 3 months where buyers line up for 2-3 hours just to get in.

We found this beautiful cup at a café/shop Chataro in Okinawa, so unfortunately, only one unit of this item is available. Hopefully, we'll be able to get in touch with the ceramic artist to procure more.

ARTIST DESCRIPTION: Yuuki Tomura

 

 

 

 

"Things destroyed in the past,
thing being destroyed today,
things that may be destroyed in the future.
I want to express these impermanence of human, things,
or feelings with my ceramic works.
My desire is to put a smile on someone's face
who see my work in the distant future."
(translated from the original words by Yuuki)
