The 'Egg Shell' series, crafted using a unique technique and special clay with high translucency, features porcelain pieces as delicate as eggshells, boasting a distinctive whiteness. This eye-catching masterpiece is fired at a high temperature of 1300°C for 13 hours, resulting in drinking cups less than 1 mm thick that are resistant to breakage.

A special method of 'Awa' (it means bubble in Japanese) design is employed to create a sparkling effect in the ceramic, reminiscent of viewing the water's surface from beneath the sea. Each bubble is meticulously hand-finished, although variations in appearance may occur from piece to piece.

This coffee cup & saucer set elevates your coffee or tea time, adding a touch of sophistication to your home. Indulge in their refined craftsmanship and savour the moment.
