A single spouted pouring vessel, Katakuchi translates to ‘mouth on one side’ and is the traditional choice for pouring sake.
Unlike the Tokuri, the larger shape of the Katakuchi welcomes a two-hand stance, and the open rim allows for the scent to travel before pouring has begun, making usage a multi-sensorial experience.
Thick walls and thoughtful design mean your hands are kept warm and comfortable when serving your drink of choice.
Nb. these are hand made pieces and measurements are approximate.
Made in Japan.

Kowari creates his pieces in a wood fired anagama kiln in Fujinomiya, Shizuoka Prefecture, and the DEA Store is the official stockist of Tetsuya Kowari work in Australia.
