Marunaka Family Kiln
The Marunaka 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 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 and sake cups, bowls, pourers and mugs - including his classic shape for tea and coffee, the ‘lopsided’ mug.
Slight irregularities in size, glaze and texture reflect the artisan nature of the product and are embraced.
