Incredibly special and unique, these “Abyss" cups are made from porcelain indigenous to Bizen, Japan, marbled with cobalt oxide and fired upside down on a shell prop to promote movement in the exterior surface. Their glossy azure interior is seamlessly encapsulated by a rocky façade like sky meeting the sea.
Nb. these are hand made pieces and measurements are approximate.
Made in Japan.
