It was in a teahouse in Japan that the potter Julie Lavoie discovered Tenmoku. On seeing the works of Kamada Koji for the first time, she was inspired by the 'starry skies' effect, unique to this glaze. Like a premonition, this idea of meteors had already appeared in her work before this journey.

Tenmoku is a glaze that reacts a lot to the temperature and firing time. Consequently it requires much patience and skill on the part of the artist.

The artisanal aspect of these cups makes them all unique. This why the shape and capacity may vary from one to another. Think of it as a guarantee of unique pieces, all made by hand!
