The finest of tea/coffee cups.
Exquisite to hold and behold, its all in the placement and feel of the handle as you lift the finest, curved lip to your own lips.
An absolute joy to cherish forever by this incredibly talented artist.
A graduate from the Nagoya University of the Arts, Tetsuya Ozawa is well-studied in traditional Japanese Fine Arts, and in 2008, Ozawa trained under Yoshikawa Masamichi.
Ozawa lives and works in Tokomame City, a city which has been associated with ceramics production since at least the Heian Period (794-1185). He uses local clay from this city and introduces the traditional glaze called Chara, creating his signature expression, which is reminiscent of abstract drawing.
The attractive, but rough texture of the surface is the successful result of the blend of local tradition with his own unique vision. Tetsuya uses a distinctive technique called "kofuki" (i.e. dusting) to apply a thin layer of white soil to the surface in order to create a unique texture.
