About The Maker:
Mr Marunaka’s family kiln can be found by negotiating a series of narrow, winding roads and precarious bridges spanned over small creeks. The kiln was originally opened by his father to exclusively produce vessels for ‘chawan mushi’ (a savoury egg custard dish). Now, 30 years on, Marunaka-san produces a limited range of items including tea & sake cups, mugs, bowls and pourers, including his classic shape for tea and coffee - the ‘lopsided’ mug.
