Moonlight, cup & saucer

¥2,640

The Moonlight set replicates calm, refreshing moonlight with its near-translucent blue-white ceramic. This uncompromising design looks just as fresh now as in the 1960’s, and overflows with its unique elegenance to transcend space, time, and Japanese versus Western styles.
Its gentle tone draws attention to coffee, while the cup itself curves sightly inward at the rim. You’ll find yourself unknowingly tracing the edges of the saucer with your fingertips. These cup and saucers look beautiful when held together as a set.

Important points

  • The characteristics of the product can result in slight differences in size, shape (distortion), color, and glaze, etc. Small pinholes and/or black spots may also be visible.
  • Due to the nature of this product, "scratches" along the unglazed surface or "abrasions" from where the cup rested while being baked may be present.
  • If you already own a product in the same series, the color of the delivered product may differ from the one you have.
  • Concerning difference related to the different cups:
    In order to reduce the distortion of the thin cup in "Cup & Saucer," it is placed in the kiln and baked wih the rim facing down. As a result, the rim is unglazed and is shaved and smoothened after it has been removed from the kiln.
    The cups in "High Cup & Saucer" and "Demitasse Cup & Saucer" are baked with the bottoms down, per the usual method, so while the rim is blazed, the bottoms of the cup are unglazed.
  • About the thickness of the rims on the different cups:
    The rim on the "Cup & Saucer" cup is thin, while the rims for "High Cup & Saucer" and "Demitasse Cup & Saucer" are a bit thicker.
