Add to my notebook
110 ml

The workshop of Yoshiki Murata is located in the coastal town of Tokoname in Aichi Prefecture and, turned by hand, this object is made with local clay. Mr Murata is what we consider a “ceramics innovator”. With more than 35 years of ceramics under his belt, he is still very passionate about exploring new clays, new forms and new methods of firing. The hammered finish on this piece is one of Mr. Murata most recognizable artistic signature.

Each handcrafted piece is unique and has been catalogued separately to ensure that the piece you see is the piece you get.

This collector's item comes with a wooden box signed by the artist. Look after it. The ensemble could well appreciate in value over the years.

The result is a highly aromatic and complex tasting tea that contains very little tannins. The vegetal character evokes marine flavours of salt and iodine (fresh wakame seeweed) and green vegetable (spinach, swiss chard, and cooked celery) notes. The soft green liquor is bright and has a lingering delicate and herbaceous …
