Spinning Top Mug
Hand thrown by Japanese potter, Katsuya Hattori, this beautiful mug forms part of the “Spinning Top” range. Employing a form of “kohiki” technique to produce the spinning top design effect – Katsuya hand throws an iron-rich red clay body, which he then covers with white slip; from this he carves out a circular design to allow the red clay to show through. Originally developed by Korean potters, the kohiki technique greatly appealed to the “busho chajin” or tea-warrior men of the late 1500s.
